Manchester United told to sign Jack Grealish over James Maddison by Jonathan Greening – EXCLUSIVE

Manchester United should sign Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish ahead of James Maddison because the Leicester City star is too similar to Bruno Fernandes.

That’s the view of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s old team-mate Jonathan Greening, the former United midfielder who also had spells with Middlesbrough, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham, who believes Grealish would be a better fit for the current squad.

Both English midfielders have been heavily linked with a transfer to Old Trafford this summer after a string of impressive displays for their respective clubs this season.

Maddison has scored six goals and provided three assists in the Premier League as Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester look to secure a Champions League spot, but Grealish’s figures – of seven goals and six assists – are even more impressive given he has been playing for relegation-threatened Villa.

And Greening thinks United should be looking to lure the ‘gritty and determined’ Grealish away from his boyhood club rather than focusing on a deal for Maddison.

‘Over the past few months there’s been talk of Grealish coming or Maddison coming,’ Greening, who was an unused substitute in United’s famous 1999 Champions League win, told Metro.co.uk on behalf of the Grand National. ‘I actually feel I would prefer Jack Grealish.

‘Maddison is a very good player, super technical, he can create, great passing both short and long, and great on set plays.   

‘Jack Grealish, however, has that little bit of difference, he can take players on, he can drive forwards with the ball, and slide that pass through.

‘He’s got that bit of grit and determination; and doesn’t like losing, you can see that in his game.

‘Maddison is also maybe a bit too similar to Fernandes, whereas Jack Grealish will bring in something different, he can find pockets of space, he can drive at opponents and take on 2-3 players in one movement. 

‘He’d be a better player at United with the current squad than Maddison would be for me.’
