Former Manchester United centre-back is of the opinion that if Jack Grealish leaves Aston Villa, he would not end up at Old Trafford.

Rio Ferdinand believes that if Jack Grealish was to leave Aston Villa, he would not prefer to go to Manchester United. Old Trafford has plenty of options in the attacking section of the field, with the likes of many talented players.

Ferdinand knows that Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford are two professionals who are going to make it hard for Grealish to move to United. Apart from those two, they have the talismanic Bruno Fernandes who covers every bit of grass for the Red Devils.

It is true that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a number of alternatives for the creative midfield department. And the former United defender does not think that the 25-year-old England international will go for this switch.

Ferdinand was asked if United should stay active with regards to the Grealish deal, he told the UMM YouTube channel: “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.”
