Grealish, 24, led Villa to a deserved 2-2 draw and Solskjaer has publicly outlined his intention to add more creativity to the United attack, with Leicester playmaker James Maddison earmarked as the ideal addition.
When asked if Grealish was 'the kind of player Manchester United are lacking', Solskjaer replied: "I can't talk too much about other teams' players, if they're Man United calibre or targets. But fantastic goal, I think he hit one of them corners I hit a couple of times. It was a great finish, but we should defend better, show him down the left.
"But what a goal and he played a good game."
