Aston Villa playmaker, Jack Grealish would be a bit-part player at Manchester United, Stephen Warnock has said.
Warnock recently revealed that the English midfielder has little sporting and commercial value to the Red Devils at £80 million ($101m).
According to him, even if Grealish will fancy the move, Mufc will find it hard to splash the cash on a player who will only add depth to their currently firing squad.
He added that his £80m pricetag will only be spent on someone who will start week-in and week-out for the Red Devils.
His words, “It’s the going rate for players, but for £80m I want someone who’s going to start week-in and week-out.
“When you think about his global appeal for Manchester United, is he going to sell you shirts week-in and week-out to repay a lot of that money that he’s going to cost? I’m not so sure he will.
“But who else will buy him for £80m with the pandemic that we’re coming out of and can clubs afford to shell out £80m?
“I don’t think they can. That figure would have to come down considerably and I think it will as well.”
“If he was to join a club like Manchester United then being around better players, playing higher up the pitch and not having to do three or four jobs on the football pitch that he feels he has to do drag the team back up to where they need to be, I think he’ll be a far superior player in a much better team.
“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows that and he understands the qualities that Jack Grealish possesses, it adds to the quality of United’s squad.
“Would he play every week? That’s what Jack has to work out in his head.
“If he was to go to United, is he happy being a bit-part player?”
