CAPE TOWN – Ex-Aston Villa and England striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has told Jack Grealish to snub Manchester United and instead look to sign for clubs like Barcelona and Juventus.

According to The Sun, the former England international told Grealish he was too good for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United, who are keen to secure his services ahead of Euro 2020.

“I am not just saying this as I have played with him, but I honestly think he is the best attacking midfield option that England have got at this current time,” said Agbonlahor.

“That is why, when people say Grealish to Manchester United, [I say] he could do so much better than that,” he continued.

“He could walk into any team in the world, even Barcelona or Juventus.

“For where Manchester United are now, ge could go to better teams around the world, so he doesn’t need to limit himself to just United and focus on teams who are playing in the Champions League.

“The good thing about Jack is that he can run with and without the ball, play in different positions and score goals. He’s the type of player that fans of football will go to a game to specifically watch, even if they aren’t fans of Villa,” Agbonlahor said.

Alongside James Maddison, Declan Rice and Jadon Sancho, Grealish is one of a number of young English players being targetted by Solskjaer as he attempts to build an English core at Manchester United.
