Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has revealed that while Manchester City are in pole position to sign Jack Grealish this summer, it is still not too late for the Red Devils to make a big decision over signing the English playmaker.

Grealish has been one of the best players in the league over the last couple of seasons and has been heavily linked with a move away from Aston Villa this summer with City linked with a £100m move for him.

United, meanwhile, have already signed up Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane and their transfer fee ensures that the Red Devils are neither in a position, nor thinking about Grealish at all.

However, with Paul Pogba being linked with a move away from the Red Devils again, there just may be a chance for a big surprise. At least that's what Ferdinand thinks.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Ferdinand said: "I would love him (Grealish) to join Manchester United, obviously. But I just feel that the position that he plays is stacked."

The United legend added, "Bruno [Fernandes] in a ten, [Marcus] Rashford's on the left, [Anthony] Martial is there, [Paul] Pogba is there. It kind of rules Manchester United out unless they say; 'No, we're going to shift a player or two to get him'. That's the big decision they have to make."

Finally accepting reality as it is and mentioning that Grealish looks City bound, Ferdinand concluded, "If he's going to go anywhere, I think it will be Man City. He would add to that team. Does he improve every team in the Premier League? Yes he does, end of argument. He improves every team."

Despite all of the speculation surrounding Grealish's future, it may well be the case that he eventually ends up staying at Aston Villa for another season.
