Roy Keane has likened Jack Grealish to Cristiano Ronaldo, claiming the Manchester United target is “pure quality”.

Aston Villa star has shown an impressive performance during England’s 1 – 0 friendly win over Austria last night.

“He’s a pure quality player,” Keane said of Grealish on ITV. “Every time I watch him play, he affects the game.

“I’d find it very hard to leave him out of the starting XI. He could be the star man for England, he makes things happen.

“He has courage and always wants the ball in tight areas. Like Cristiano Ronaldo at Portugal, you need players like that in your team. He’s outstanding.”
