Fernandes backed to form partnership with Grealish at Man Utd by Heskey

Former England striker Emile Heskey has admitted that Jack Grealish will be leaving Aston Villa at the end of the season.

The 24-year-old has impressed so far this season despite Villa’s struggles in the Premier League, and Manchester United are said to be interested in bringing him to Old Trafford.

If Grealish is to make the move to Manchester, he will need to fit in midfield alongside new boy Bruno Fernandes, who has impressed in each of his performances since leaving Sporting Lisbon in January.

Former Villa and Liverpool man Heskey thinks that could prove to be successful, despite United already having plenty of first-team players fighting for a starting spot.

He told GentingBet: “I think Jack Grealish would do well at Man United.

“He’s a commanding midfielder and the kind that they’ve missed recently.

“They have it now in Fernandes but having another one alongside him who could drive from the midfield – that’s Jack all over.

“But Jack can play in several different positions very well. He would do very well at Manchester United.”

Before adding: “There is every chance that Jack Grealish will join Man United in the summer.

“I don’t think that Jack will be at Villa come the end of the season.

“He’s done a phenomenal job for them since he started out at the club.

“I played with him when I was at Villa, he was only a young lad, he used to come and train with us – he was a phenomenal player even then and he has gone from strength to strength.

“He’s taken everything on his shoulders at a young age.

“He’s a very young captain but has been very positive with it. He’s stayed at Villa a lot longer than a lot of people would have thought he would, so full credit to him.

“Villa will now get a decent fee for him and he’ll go on and make a stellar career.”
