Ed Woodward could choose against making a move for Jack Grealish
Woodward is unclear as to where the Aston Villa skipper will fit in United’s starting XI. The 24-year-old can function centrally as a playmaker while also doing a job out wide on the left.
This versatility has been a boon for Villa this season while also being one of Grealish’s major selling traits. But bringing him in to play on the left could mean having to bench one of our front three.
The triad of Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial have formed an excellent understanding. The trio has been at its scintillating best since the restart as United scored goal after goal.
According to the report, Woodward is not keen on disturbing what has been the league’s most potent front three. The same goes for the cental playmaker’s role that is currently occupied by Bruno Fernandes.
The Portuguese has given United a new dimension since joining the club in January. Moving him from a position where he has constantly delivered could be counterproductive.
This leaves Grealish’s future in limbo. Aston Villa manager Dean Smith had earlier admitted that he is unsure if his skipper has played his last game for the club.
The midfielder has clearly shown that he is ready to make the step up. It remains to be seen what United decide to do.
United have been running on empty fuel tanks in the last few games. Strengthening the team’s depth is key ahead of what could be a season where we fight on multiple fronts.

Rather than fret about the logistics, Woodward should focus on backing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. As the man in charge of putting a team out, the Norwegian should be trusted to do what he thinks is best.
The way we see it, if Solskjaer wants Grealish, Woodward should do everything in his powers to go get him.
