Jack Grealish has been urged to turn down a move to Manchester United at the end of the season by his former Aston Villa teammate Gabby Agbonlahor, who says the playmaker is already 'too good' to move to Old Trafford.
The 24-year-old's second spell in the Premier League has cemented his place as one of England's best midfielders, having scored seven goals and picked up six assists to keep Villa just outside the relegation zone.
He's expected to move onto bigger and better things this summer regardless of Aston Villa's survival, but his former teammate Agbonlahor insists Grealish can 'do so much better' than joining Manchester United at the end of the season.
"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," Agbonlahor told Bet O'Clock, via the Sun. "That is why, when people say Grealish to Manchester United, he could do so much better than that.
"He could walk into any team in the world, even Barcelona or Juventus. For where Manchester United are now, he 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 is the type of player that fans of football will go to a game to specifically watch him, even if they aren’t fans of Villa."
Having been involved in more goals this season than any other English midfielder, Grealish is on the cusp of being called up to Gareth Southgate's senior national side ahead of the European Championships this summer.
Grealish has only ever represented England at Under-21 level, with his last appearances coming in March 2017 against Denmark's Under-21 side.
