Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, former Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie believes Jack Grealish would be a better fit for Manchester City than Manchester United.
Grealish is currently being linked with a move to the Etihad, with The Independent recently reporting that there is an expectation that the Premier League champions will break the bank to sign the 25-year-old attacking midfielder this summer.
There has also been a lot of talk in the past about Manchester United wanting to bring Grealish to Old Trafford. However, out of the two teams, Hendrie feels the England international would be better suited to Pep Guardiola’s side.
Who would be the better signing?
On Manchester City’s reported interest in Grealish, the ex-Villa player told TT in an exclusive interview:
“It’s how Pep and Manchester City are going to go about their business because, you know, there’s big talk about Harry Kane possibly being available.
“I feel that this season they’ve used that false nine quite a bit and it’s been one of them where you just feel that if they are going to use a false nine, I feel Jack would fit the bill better at Manchester City if I’m being quite honest.
“I think Bruno [Fernandes] at Man U, he’s certainly their big player, key player. I think then you’ve got to look at the likes of [Mason] Greenwood, [Marcus] Rashford and you just think to yourself, they’re players that are definitely going to play.”
With Manchester City seemingly interested in both Kane and Grealish, it will be interesting to see if they go for both or just the one.
Whatever the case, it does look like attacking reinforcements are coming to the Etihad this summer.
