Former Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill believes Jack Grealish has what it takes to play for Manchester United.

Grealish is being targeted by United ahead of this summer and if he does wind up at Old Trafford, 'there's no question' he can produce the goods.

That's according to O'Neill, who told Stats Perform News : "On Grealish's future, that's difficult to say. He's a big fans' favourite and Villa is his football club as well.

"Are you saying, 'Does he have the ability to play for Manchester United?' Certainly, the natural talent to play for any of the big clubs – there's no question about that.

"I just don't know enough and I'm in no position to make that judgement."

O'Neill has been surprised by former club Aston Villa this season, how they have struggled and their reliance on Grealish.

"My own view was that they had a super end to the Championship season, they were the best team in it by a long distance, I felt," he added.

"I honestly thought that they wouldn't have too much difficulty in staying up. They've put some money in, a lot of money in, some people say between 130 and 150 million pounds.

"So, I didn't expect them to struggle at all this season. I expected it to be difficult, but not to struggle.

"I met Jack Grealish a number of years ago when we wanted him to play for the Republic of Ireland and he chose to play with England, no problem with that whatsoever – his father is English and he had played underage football for the Republic of Ireland, he made that decision and that's absolutely fine.

"He's very strong; he's much stronger than he was five years ago, a quality player, hard to rob.

"You would hope that, at the end, Villa would have enough to pull themselves around and see it through. Of course, if you're depending on one player, which they have been over the past couple of months, that can cause a problem."
