Man United legend Roy Keane has showered praise on Aston Villa star Jack Grealish, who is a target of his former club after watching him play for England on Sunday night.
The English team suffered a 2-0 defeat to Belgium, as the manager Martinez confirmed the reason why they are being ranked no.1 in the world.
Despite the defeat, Jack Grealish was still at his best and gave a good performance to have won the praise of the former Red Devils captain.
Roy Keane affirms that Jack Grealish has improved in the last six months and it’s no surprise Manchester United were linked with the player, stressing that the efforts spent by the Red Devils to snap up the signature of England international winger Jadon Sancho was not worth it.

The Red Davis had their attention on the Man City academy product as their top target and spent the whole window making their attempts. The German Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund insisted on £108 million for the signature of Jadon Sancho and that was enough to scare the club away.
Meanwhile, Jack Grealish had a release clause of £80 million during the last transfer window as the Villa Park team were not willing to let him leave the club last summer window.
Singing his prise, Roy Keane told ITV, as cited by the Mecarto that Jack Grealish is a spectacular player who knows how to take risks and has big courage to fight for his team.
“Wanting the ball in tight areas, dealing with the ball, getting you up the pitch, winning free-kicks, courage, he’s quicker than you think. The way he’s improved over the past six months has been fantastic. We keep talking about England winning something or getting to the next level, I think they need a player like Jack to do that. He was outstanding.” He added
However, it is not known if Man United will return or his signature or not but they have been made to see reasons why he is needed.
