Manchester United sent £80 million transfer message as ‘Grealish would be bit-part player’ that wouldnt sell shirts’
Jack Grealish would be a “bit-part player” at Manchester United, according to Stephen Warnock, ahead of a possible summe rmove.
Now we all know that Grealish has been brilliant in a side that has been battling relegation all season, and we also know that there is big interest from Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is a fan of the midfielder.
Now we also know that Warnock believes that United will splash the cash on a player who would add little more than depth to their ranks, He told Stadium Astro: “It’s the going rate for players, but for £80m I want someone who’s going to start week-in and week-out.
“When you think about his global appeal for Manchester United, is he going to sell you shirts week-in and week-out to repay a lot of that money that he’s going to cost? I’m not so sure he will.
“But who else will buy him for £80m with the pandemic that we’re coming out of and can clubs afford to shell out £80m?
“I don’t think they can. That figure would have to come down considerably and I think it will as well.”
“If he was to join a club like Manchester United then being around better players, playing higher up the pitch and not having to do three or four jobs on the football pitch that he feels he has to do drag the team back up to where they need to be, I think he’ll be a far superior player in a much better team.
“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows that and he understands the qualities that Jack Grealish possesses, it adds to the quality of United’s squad.
“Would he play every week? That’s what Jack has to work out in his head.
“If he was to go to United, is he happy being a bit-part player?”
Grealish is a very good, but how could he fit into the system and style of play at United? they already have some top players…
