Big United message opens door for Chelsea to secure £80 million transfer deal?
Rio Ferdinand has claimed that he cannot see Chelsea target Jack Grealish at Manchester United.
Over the past few seasons, Grealish has developed into one of the best and most creative midfielders in the Premier League, and his performances has led to speculation that both Chelsea and United are keen on a transfer deal.
There have been suggestions that efforts will be made to further bolster those United ranks, with Grealish a long-standing target for an ambitious Red Devils, but Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is also reportedly a massive fan of the midfielder.
But now, amid all the speculation, Chelsea have been handed a real boost after Ferdinand claimed that he cannot see the £80 million rated midfielder at the Manchester Giants, Asked by the UMM YouTube channel whether United should be in the market for Grealish, former Red Devils defender Ferdinand said: “All day long. All day long, man.
“I don’t think Bruno Fernandes is the problem, you’ve got Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba that are both playing on the left and that’s where Jack plays.
“His best position is on the left, and his next best position is No.10. They’re the positions where our most influential players are right now. So I think it’s difficult to see him at Manchester United right now.
“If he leaves Villa, I just don’t think it’ll be to Manchester United, unless they ship one or two of those boys away. I see it as a difficult deal to be done for Man United.”
