Dimitar Berbatov has urged Manchester United to make Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish their No.1 transfer target this summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been cautioned of signing more midfielders as he seeks to strengthen his midfield options in the summer transfer.
The club would look to improve the midfield department, showing keen interests in Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, Saul Niguez of Atletico Madrid, Leicester City’s James Maddison and Villa’s captain Grealish.
However, Ole’s side were reportedly prioritising the transfer of Sancho but seems to be out of the club’s budget due to his price range at £100 million.
Grealish on the other hand would obviously make an excellent addition to the squad, and Berbatov has urged his former club to make him a priority signing.
Berbatov told BetFair: “Manchester United have been linked with Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid again.
“For me looking at the situation, Pogba is back, Fernandes is there, they have McTominay who needs to play regularly because he’s young and is doing so well, Mata is there, Matic is there who is great at what he does and to put one more in the mix is only okay if you are going to use them and have them playing regularly because that transfer will probably cost a lot of money.
“In my opinion, I think they have enough quality in the team anyway, especially with Pogba coming back, but maybe Solskjaer has a different decision and he has decided that they need someone to strengthen there.
“There have also been reports about United being interested in Jack Grealish, last week Sancho was their top target, this week it’s Grealish, next week it will be somebody else.
“There are so many players associated with a move to United at the moment, it is a good thing I suppose and for the players it boost their reputation.
“I can see Grealish being a better fit at United than someone else, he is used to the Premier League and he is producing great goals and assists.
However, Berbatov believes Grealish has similar traits as some current players and urges for diversity in the midfield role. He added: “But, he is similar to Fernandes, Pogba and Mata in a way and you don’t want too much similarity in your team.”
