What next for Jack Grealish, a transfer away from Villa?



Jack Grealish

Where does the future lie for Jack Grealish?

One saving grace for Aston Villa this season is the progression of local lad Jack Grealish. However, could we see a Grealish transfer away from his home club? After impressing in Villa’s terrific 10 game run in the Championship, Grealish has reached new heights in the top division. Following a poor run in a number 10 role, Smith pushed Grealish into a wider position. The main aim of doing so, to allow him to cut in on his preferred right foot. This worked wonders for both Jack and Villa, with the villains then collecting 7 points in 3 games soon after.

However, as Jack has progressed, unfortunately Villa have not- leaving the 24 year old in a difficult situation. Whilst Jack makes it clear he adores Villa, he’s reached the point where his career must come first. Grealish has had major interest from the giants of English football such as Manchester United and Manchester City, and a rejected £15 million bid from Tottenham two years ago proves their interest. Jack is evidently too good for the current Villa side and will need to leave in order to progress in his career.

So, the question still stands- where should he go?

Of the array of clubs he is linked with, two clubs are mentioned time and time again- Manchester United and Manchester City. So which side of Manchester is he more suited to?


Manchester City

Manchester City are known for the talent they have on offer. Under one of the world’s best coaches in Guardiola, its undoubted that Jack would improve as a player. If he is to realise his dreams of becoming an England national, then Manchester City have a track record of helping players do so. But where can Jack fit into Manchester City’s side? With Foden pushing for a place in central midfield and City starting in a 4-3-3 , it makes sense for Grealish to slot in on the left hand side. But one difficulty in joining City is surprisingly their ability. Jack has always been the star man at Villa but the reality is at City he would not be. This is something that a weaker Manchester United may be able to capitalise on with a better contract offer.

Manchester United

Solskjaer makes it clear he admires Grealish. It is also fairly clear that he suits the philosophy of the club, with the likes of  Greenwood, James and Wan Bissaka featuring heavily this season. But where could Grealish play? Manchester United prefer to use a 4-2-3-1, with Grealish most likely being out on the left. If he chooses the Reds, Jack would be joining a side that he may be the star man at, an important factor.


We hope you enjoyed this article about Jack Grealish’s future. What do you think would be the best next step for his career, will we see a Grealish transfer?
