Why Solskjaer must pay attention to Wes Brown’s advice and sign Jack Grealish
Solskjaer and United have endured a difficult start to their new season. They have seen a turnaround in their fortunes since their comeback night at Paris in the Champions League last season. They seem to be sick of playing away games.
Despite new additions Harry Maguire, Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James having stepped up in almost every game they have played, there is still room for improvement in the team. But their defence and the forward line seem to be in fine form.
The long absence of talisman Pogba and Nemanja Matic due to injuries has left them with very few options in their midfield. Therefore, the pressure is on Solskjaer’s shoulders to seek the inexperienced players to control the game. Things have not gone according to plan and United have failed to register easy wins in their away games.
According to 888Sport (h/t Metro), Manchester United legend Wes Brown has urged Solskjaer to sign two Premier League stars, one of whom is Jack Grealish.
Grealish has been the key to Aston Villa’s decent performances in recent times. He has helped them get promoted to the Premier League. Currently, Villa sit just above the relegation zone, but Grealish’s performances have caught the eye.
The captain of his boyhood club, Grealish has a lot to offer in the midfield role. His ability to play on the left and right wings shows that he is an out and out attacker. He can twist and turn with ease and has the right physique to evade challenges.
His attributes as a complete attacker can help Solskjaer find the right solution for United. Bleacher Report has compared him to the likes of Adam Lallana and David Silva, claiming he can play one-touch passes in tight spaces and can open the pitch for himself with his touches and turns.
United’s form has diminished in recent times and Solskjaer seems to have difficulties in picking the right eleven when the main players are unavailable and this can help Grealish showcase his talent. He may not get an opportunity to play every game for United due to the competition at the club but he can still be the one to make a difference by coming off the bench.
The signing of Jack Grealish must be a top priority if United are to avoid the limitations in their midfield. Solskjaer must try and make a move for this dynamic prospect in order to settle the issues of lacking a backup player.
