Jack Grealish’s former team-mate Gabby Agbonlahor has urged the Aston Villa star to reject Manchester United.
The former Villa striker believes Grealish can do ‘much better’ than United and has told him to aim higher.
‘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 The Sun.

Former Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor believes Grealish can do ‘much better’ than United
‘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.’
Villa boss Dean Smith was asked if silverware might help keep captain and talisman Grealish on Friday.

‘Obviously, staying in this league is one of the biggest things that will help us keep Jack,’ Smith replied.
‘Jack’s future, like that of the rest of the players, is down to what happens over the next three months. If we win or lose this final, it won’t define the season.’
Grealish is likely to leave if Villa drop, delivering the club at least £60million without any of the usual sell-on clauses or outstanding payments to a previous club, because he is homegrown.
Any replacement would not, of course, command Grealish’s wages, thought to be around £70,000 a week. That’s not how the 24-year-old wants it to be.
At Bodymoor, he is often in the gym with his strength and conditioning coach into the evenings.
The hope that he and Smith take into Wembley is that, having trained and travelled to London on Friday afternoon, they can record an utterly unexpected win against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final which will jet-propel Villa into the critical next three months.
