Former Aston Villa star Gabriel Agbonlahor has stated that midfielder Jack Grealish would walk into the current Manchester United side as they are lacking the type of creativity that Grealish could have provided them if he was with the Red Devils.
The Villa star has been linked with a move away from the club with United’s name being in the mix along with Tottenham’s and Agbonlahor believes that the Old Trafford outfit would be willing to pay even £70 million for him.
“Man Utd, Villa might say, ‘You know what, it’s going to cost you £70m.’ I think Man Utd pay it. He’d walk into that side, they’re missing that creativity,” he said, as per Goal.
️ Agbonlahor on Grealish: "I don’t think he wants to leave Villa. Villa are a massive club, big history, if they can get the right players in the summer, he’s the captain, the team will be built around him. There’s some times you don’t want to leave."— VillaTilliDie (@VillaTil1Die) January 14, 2020

He also added that he Grealish would be an instant starter for both Arsenal and Spurs but also thinks that the midfielder isn’t keen on leaving Villa just yet.
“Tottenham he walks straight into, Arsenal side he walks straight into. I don’t think you can compare [Giovani] Lo Celso with Jack, how Jack’s playing, they’re different qualities he’s got to these sort of players.
“I just think he could fit into those teams. But I don’t think he wants to leave Villa. Villa are a massive club, big history, if they can get the right players in the summer, he’s the captain, the team will be built around him. There’s some times you don’t want to leave.”
