Former Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor has told Jack Grealish he is ‘too good’ for Manchester United and should aim to join either Barcelona or Juventus instead.
The 24-year-old has been in sublime form this season, scoring seven goals with six assists in a bid to keep his boyhood club safe from Premier League relegation.
His impressive displays have caught the eye of United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and the club are reportedly keen to get a deal done before Euro 2020.
However, former Villa striker Agbonlahor wants Grealish to aim higher, he told The Sun: ‘I am not just saying this as I have played with him, but I honestly think he is the best attacking midfield option that England have got at this current time.
‘That is why, when people say Grealish to Manchester United, he could do so much better than that.
‘He could walk into any team in the world, even Barcelona or Juventus.
‘For where Manchester United are now, he could go to better teams around the world, so he doesn’t need to limit himself to just United and focus on teams who are playing in the Champions League.
‘The good thing about Jack is that he can run with and without the ball, play in different positions and score goals.
‘He is the type of player that fans of football will go to a game to specifically watch him, even if they aren’t fans of Villa.’
Grealish will have the chance to impress potential suitors when Villa take on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday.
The attacking midfielder will be hoping to pique the interest of England manager Gareth Southgate, who is yet to call Grealish up to the squad.
Leicester City’s James Maddison is reportedly another one of United’s prime targets for the summer window, as Solskjaer looks to build a British core.
