- Sharpe believes Grealish is definitely worthy of playing at United.
- ‘He transitions defence to attack quite easily, creates and scores goals and I think he’s got everything,’ says the former United midfielder.
- He also tips the Villa captain to become a ‘sensational player’ in a good team.
When asked on whether the Aston Villa captain is “Man United material”, he told Superstar Speakers: “Totally. I think he’s got Man United written all over him.
“I think John Terry being at the club has changed his attitude a little bit towards how important he is in games, how valuable he is, how much he needs to not give the ball away cheaply and see himself as a top-six player, a top European player.
“He has the ability, he goes past people with ease. He transitions defence to attack quite easily, creates and scores goals and I think he’s got everything.
“I think in a good team, where someone can’t single him out and there’s other players there to mark and he ends up getting more room – I think he’ll be sensational.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also an admirer of Grealish and praised him after United’s 2-2 draw against Villa earlier this season.
Grealish has scored 7 goals and assisted 6 for Villa, being among the best midfielders in the Premier League this season.
