Chelsea icon and Aston Villa assistant coach John Terry thinks Manchester United target Jack Grealish has the same “god-given talent” as Real Madrid star Eden Hazard.

Grealish has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford, while Hazard left Stamford Bridge in 2018 to join Real Madrid.

Former Chelsea defender Terry has parallelled the attacking midfielder to his former Stamford Bridge team-mates Hazard and Joe Cole.

“I think he’s similar to Joe Cole and Eden Hazard,” Terry said of Grealish during a Q&A session on Villa’s official website. “I just think the natural ability he’s got and that Joe Cole had, a god-given talent that not many people are blessed with but he’s certainly got.

“The way he glides past people – he’s quick, but not many people know it. I don’t think he knows how quick he is. He’s a tremendous talent, he gets a lot of fouls in the Championship and now in the Premier League. People don’t know how to stop him.”
