Roy Keane says he would swap Paul Pogba for Jack Grealish

Former Manchester United star Roy Keane believes the Red Devils will have to sign Harry Kane and Jack Grealish if they are to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title next season.

The Red Devils could certainly use more creativity on their side and Grealish has been one of the best creators in the Premier League so far this season.

In the meantime, they will need a long-term alternative to Edinson Cavani, and Kane would be a world-class signature for them.

Keane has also claimed he would swap Grealish with Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba if he had the opportunity.

“I would swap Grealish for Pogba tomorrow, absolutely,” he said (via Irish examiner). “They have had Pogba for the last three or four years and have not had them near a league title. Get rid of Pogba, move him on if necessary.

“These players have not done it when they had to do it, in the semi-finals and in the title race. They’re talking about a new contract for him because they’m worried he’s in his final year, but if they want to make money on him, then do it this summer. ”

The French world champion winner has been criticized for being inconsistent since his £ 89.3m transfer back to Old Trafford, and United legend has it that Pogba has failed to guide his side anywhere close to a league title.

There have been rumors of a potential extension of the 28-year-old midfielder’s contract and it will be interesting to see if United can convince the Frenchman to stay at Old Trafford beyond this season.

His agent Mino Raiola previously claimed that his time at the club is over and Pogba has also been linked with a return to Juventus.

As for Grealish, it will be interesting to see how the Red Devils accommodate him in their starting lineup if they decide to sign him and keep Pogba at the club.
