The former Aston Villa play maker believes the highly-rated 24-year-old doesn’t trust those around him at present, but would star in a better team
Jack Grealish is a “special player”, says Paul Merson, and thinks it is easy to see why the likes of Manchester United are so keen on landing a creative influence who is trying to be “the school captain” at Aston Villa.
The 24-year-old’s performances back in the Premier League this season have seen his stock rise considerably. Having shown himself to be capable of mixing it with English football’s elite, senior international recognition and a big-money move are now said to be on the table.
Those at Old Trafford are considered to be leading the transfer chase, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still in the market for added creativity.
