£50m-rated McGinn tipped to thrive at Man Utd by former teammate Teale

John McGinn's ex-teammate Gary Teale believes the Aston Villa midfielder could thrive at Manchester United.

The Scotland international has been linked with a £50m switch to Old Trafford.

And Teale, who played with the midfielder at St. Mirren, believes he wouldn't crumble under the pressure at United.

He told the Scottish Sun: "At first you're surprised when you see £50 million and Manchester United.

"But then you take time to reflect and digest it and there's nothing to say why he couldn't go and do it.

"He's thrived on every chance and there's no reason to say why, if he got that opportunity at Manchester United, he wouldn't thrive in that atmosphere."
