🔵 Ferdinand urges Chelsea and top teams to sign "breath-taking" Grealish

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has encouraged Chelsea or "someone" to sign the world-class footballer that is Jack Grealish.

Grealish first became the subject of high interest from Manchester United, before Manchester City came into the picture, and later Chelsea due to the player's rather exorbitant price.

While time ticks closer to the closing of the transfer deadline day, Grealish is still expected to leave to a bigger club.

'"There aren’t many breath-taking footballers around anymore who produce moments that make you go: “wow that was crazy”" Rio said as quoted by Chelsea's media.

"Grealish does that. He’s just a phenomenal player.

"Grealish is driven, he’s been loyal, the fact he stayed at Villa last season is enough for them to clap him out the stadium.

"Does he improve every team in the Premier League? Yes, he does. He improves every team. He improves Chelsea, 100 per cent. Whoever’s got the money to pay for him, do it," the six-time Premier League champion and UEFA Champions winner concluded.

Meanwhile, the European champions will take on Europa League holders Villarreal in the UEFA Super Cup.
