Jack Grealish agrees to drink with Sportsmail’s Graeme Souness… and wants Paul Pogba as a plus

Jack Grealish has responded positively to Graeme Souness’ request for a night out as long as he can bring an unusual guest – Paul Pogba.

The Sportsmail columnist has been critical of Grealish for the past few days – and believes the striker should learn to live with the negative comments.

Souness told talkSPORT: “I’d love to spend a night with Jack!” adding, “I’m not sure I could stay with him but I would enjoy a night with him.”

The Man City star responded to the broadcaster’s tweet with two crying laughing emojis and the words: “Let’s do it!! As long as I can bring Pogba as a +1.

An ongoing row between the pair follows, with the 69-year-old claiming Grealish hasn’t improved since his £100million move from Aston Villa last summer.

Grealish scored his first goal of the season against Wolves last weekend after scoring just three league goals in his first season with the Citizens.

Souness had said the 27-year-old was ‘not a quick learner’, prompting the England international to reply: ‘I don’t know what his problem is with me. He’s always saying things about me.

“I try not to read a lot of it. It’s difficult when he’s at Sky Sports and it’s all over the training ground at times. He was obviously a great player and won a lot, but I don’t know what he’s saying about me or what his problem is.”

Souness, who has invested in the sport for five decades, said he has no “vendetta” against Grealish or Pogba, which he previously criticized when he was at Manchester United.

Souness told MailSport: “I also have to say that if I met him I would like him and would love to spend a night with him, although I’m not sure I could match!”

However, Grealish has jokingly suggested they should put their previous team rivalries aside to join forces with Pogba and settle the issues surrounding the criticism once and for all.

The pundit said: “When I tried Paul Pogba it was because it was Man United and I think I was the first to call Pogba an average player in our league. I think I was 100 percent validated at the end of the day.”

France star Pogba, 29, currently plays for Serie A’s Juventus after his contract at Old Trafford expired in the summer.

Grealish is currently on duty in England before facing the Manchester derby on his return to the club on October 2.
