Comparing Jack Grealish’s 20-21 PL stats to Man Utd’s current creators

Quick Reads

After failing to sign Jack Grealish in 2020, Manchester United are reportedly set to reignite their interest in the Aston Villa midfielder. 

Grealish was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford last summer but a deal failed to materialise, and he signed a new contract with his boyhood club.

The 25-year-old has gone from strength to strength at Villa Park this season, becoming one of the best players in the Premier League.

According to the Daily Mail, United are weighing up a bid for Grealish in the summer, although the asking price could be as high as £100million.

We’ve compared his Premier League stats from 2020-21 to the corresponding stats from Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, Juan Mata, Daniel James, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford. Note: we’ve not included Donny van de Beek due to a lack of game-time.
