Former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas believes Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish must show that he can make a big impact from the bench if he is to get a move to Manchester City or Manchester United this summer.
Fabregas was regularly used as a substitute for Spain and at times during his spell at Barcelona. The Monaco star thinks being able to make telling contributions when not starting matches is something Grealish will have to get used to when playing for bigger clubs:
“In the specific case of Grealish, this has been his first big season where everyone outside Aston Villa talks about him. I don’t know what his future will be, but there could potentially be a big move for him, so he needs to show he is ready for any situation. If he did move to a Manchester City or Manchester United, nobody will guarantee that Jack Grealish will start every single game and these kinds of clubs will be looking to see that he is ready to compete.”
Grealish is said to be a key target for City manager Pep Guardiola but it is believed that the Premier League champions will have to offload players in order to raise the funds to sign the 25-year-old.
The likes of Bernardo Silva, Aymeric Laporte and even Raheem Sterling are thought to be keen on leaving the Etihad Stadium so getting the money together for Grealish should not be too much of an issue.
