Sorry United as £60 million rated Grealish told to sign with Arsenal, and here why!
Don Hutchison says Jack Grealish should snub Manchester United and move to Arsenal instead this coming transfer window.
After an impressive first season in the Premier League with Aston Villa, there has been alot of speculation in the media that Manchester United could pay £60 million to try and acquire the services of Grealish in the transfer window.
However, Arsenal have since expressed their interest in the English playmaker, as they also keep to add a bit more creativity to the side, and Hutchison believes that given the competition in the Red Devils’ midfield, the 24-year-old would be better off joining the Gunners.
‘I think it’s all about timing,’ Hutchison told ESPN FC.
‘The form of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba has probably swayed Ole to stick with those two, if Paul Pogba hangs around, so timing is probably not on Jack’s side to go somewhere like Man United.
‘I think he’d be a good signing for them, obviously, Liverpool as well. ‘I think Arsenal at this present time would be a very good move for him.
‘Having said that, it just depends on who else arsenal bring in. Because if they expect to bring in Jack Grealish for between £40-45m and expect Arsenal to get to the top four, it ain’t gonna happen.
‘So, if Jack Grealish is a stepping stone in terms of they’re going to then attract better players in different positions I.e. centre-halves, then they have got a chance.
‘I think for Jack it will be a pretty good move because they’re a footballing side.’
Look, Grealish is a very gifted player, but right now, if he made that move to United, he would barely get the game time that he wants, but the fact that Arsenal need midfielders would mean that he could petty much walk into that Arsenal side.
So we agree with Don, Arsenal would be the better move right now.
