Manchester United Legend Rio Ferdinand, has explained why he feels Jack Grealish “edges” fellow Man Utd target James Maddison amid interest
from his old club in both playmakers.
United are understood to be in the market when the transfer window re-opens for a new play maker with Paul Pogba future still in the balance.
And Ferdinand has suggested United should move for the Villa captain, whom he feels is the better alternative.
Responding to a Q&A on Instagram , Ferdinand said:
“Grealish or Maddison? That’s a good question. They’re both flying, both done unbelievably well over the last year.
“They’re very different players.
“Maddison is someone who can get the ball, he can pop it about.
“He gets goals, gets assists, sets up chances, he’s sharp, he gets in good positions to create things. Very good footballer. I like him.
“Grealish does all of that but he has one thing over all these players we talk about in this position for England like Dele Alli, Maddison, Mason Mount in that position, that can play off the striker, that can play as an attacking midfielder.
“Grealish can take people on. Grealish gets the ball, he can manipulate the ball, draw players to him leaving space for someone else.
“That’s what I like about Grealish. He’s got that bit of arrogance as well. Knows he’s a good player that’s
“He just edges it for me.”
Bruno Fernandes has added a new dimension to the red devils style of play, But additional signings are needed in the summer.
