Manchester United should replace Paul Pogba with Jack Grealish in the summer transfer window, according to Lee Sharpe. Pogba hasn’t played for United since Boxing Day due to a recurring ankle issue and has been continuously linked with a move away from Old Trafford.
I think he is fantastic on the ball, his vision and awareness are absolutely second to none. And I am guessing he would be there to replace Pogba
The star midfielder stated last summer that he would be open for a new challenge away from Manchester but a transfer never materialised.
Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus continue to keep tabs on the France international with the Red Devils reportedly open on sanctioning his departure for the right price.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on signing Aston Villa captain Grealish and Sharpe agrees with him as he is convinced that he would be the right man to replace Pogba.

The former England international believes the Villa star would perfectly fill in for the Frenchman thanks to his creativity that would make him a “great addition” to the squad.
Sharpe told GentingBet: “Jack Grealish is a class act. I love watching him play.

“I think he is fantastic on the ball, his vision and awareness are absolutely second to none. And I am guessing he would be there to replace Pogba.
“If Grealish comes and they are playing [Bruno] Fernandes, there is no room in the team really for someone like Pogba, I think that is probably a little bit too many creative players.
“I think Grealish would do great at United; I think at the moment, he can be very much singled out as the main attacking threat for Villa, and you can get a player or two on him all the time.
“At United, with a couple more better players around him, I think he will get a little bit more freedom, a little bit more space to create and do his stuff.

“So, I think he will be a great addition to the squad.”
Grealish has shone bright at Villa Park this season with nine goals and eight assists in 30 matches for Dean Smith’s side.
The 24-year-old is among Solskjaer’s top targets as he is looking to build the team with young English talent just like his former manager Sir Alex Ferguson did.
That is why United have also been keeping tabs on the likes of James Maddison and Jadon Sancho, who have put together some scintillating performances at Leicester and Borussia Dortmund respectively.
