Jack Grealish will have trouble to find a spot for himself into Manchester United‘s first team if he decides to complete a move to Old Trafford next season, says former Premier League striker Darrent Bent. The Aston Villa captain has been one United’s primary targets for this summer but according to Bent, Grealish will find life at Old Trafford to be harder than he would expect.
“I can’t see him getting in that United team. Just because there’s no way on the planet United could have them three in the middle of the park – Fernandes, Pogba and Grealish because defensively they would get run all over”, Bent said talking to talkSPORT.
“I just think, you look at their front three – Martial, Rashford and Greenwood – he is not going to get in up there. I am not quite sure United need him in midfield if I am honest. He has got all the ability but he is not going to take Fernandes’ spot or Pogba’s and you are not going to put him in there as well. Pogba doesn’t really want to play holding midfield.”
