Rio Ferdinand doesn’t seem to care anymore whether Paul Pogba will stay or leave Old Trafford, because according to him the most important thing is that the club must bring in Jack Grealish in the transfer market next winter.
The continuation of the French National team midfielder’s career is indeed back in talks. Pogba’s transfer agent, Mino Raiola, had said that his client no longer wanted to deal with the Red Devils.
However, when asked about this, former MU defender Rio Ferdinand did not seem interested in discussing it. Instead of discussing Pogba, he is more interested in seducing United to hook Aston Villa midfielder, Jack Grealish.
“I don’t care if Pogba leaves or not, Grealish is my hero. I have known him since he was a teenager. He came to my restaurant and I bought him and his father some tickets for the game. ” said Ferdinand in Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE.
Indeed, Jack Grealish’s attitude off the pitch is often in the spotlight, but Ferdinand believes that over time this will change, and on the pitch he has the skills to become a great midfielder.
“He’s a great kid with a great family. He likes his football game. What little kids with Jack Grealish don’t see is the hunger and hard work behind it – attention to detail and the way he trains, ”
“He is one of those players who saw himself in the summer and thought, ‘Yes, I did well last season, I have signed a new contract at my childhood club, and I will go again’,” added Ferdinand.
If that’s what can happen in the winter transfer market next January, maybe what is stumbling blocks for MU is the high official price.
According to information heard, Aston Villa will charge a high price for the 25-year-old player. However, Rio Ferdinand felt that Grealish deserved high respect.
“It’s not about how good they look, it’s about whether they put up the numbers to justify the price tag? “12 in his last 14 games shows he is just that.”
