MANCHESTER UNITED legend Rio Ferdinand has mocked an irate talkSPORT caller who claimed Jack Grealish would snub a move to Old Trafford.
Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keeping tabs on the classy Aston Villa playmaker, with Paul Pogba set to leave in the summer.
Villa are pinning their survival hopes on the boyhood Holte End fanatic and skipper who is tipped to sneak into the Euro 2020 squad.
But one downbeat United fan had an on-air meltdown as he rubbished his own club's chances of signing the 24-year-old.
He said on talkSPORT: “I can tell you right now, we will not get Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.
“You look at Aston Villa, they’re a massive club. Grealish, that’s his boyhood club. Why would he want to leave for us?
“We’re mid-table at the moment. In our current form at the moment, we are mid-table. That is what we’ve got to accept at the moment.
“If Villa stay up this year and they get a bit of investment, why would he want to leave?”
But the caller sparked derision from former United and England centre-back Ferdinand.
He tweeted: "What am I hearing from the caller on @talkSPORT… he doesn't think @JackGrealish would leave for United! #loon"
United have been strongly linked with a stunning summer double swoop for Grealish and Leicester star James Maddison.
They are also keen on England winger Jadon Sancho as they look to finally mount another title challenge next season.
