Aston Villa fans are desperate to keep a hold of Jack Grealish this summer, even if it means turning down massive transfer fees from the likes of Manchester United.
The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the Villa stand-out this week, with The Sun reporting that he is on their radar after his impressive season in the English Championship.
Grealish was instrumental to their promotion bid and while the Villans ultimately fell short in the play-off final against Fulham, retaining the midfielder will be key if they are to mount another challenge next term.
It may not be as easy as that of course, with financial realities to consider.
If there is one man Villa fans want to keep though, it’s Grealish, believing if a team is built around him then he can inspire his boyhood heroes to greatness.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on a potential exit…
3 to KEEP at all costs: Johnstone, Grealish, Snodgrass
3 to let go: Richards, McCormack, Onomah
3 to sign: Joe Allen, Tom Carroll, Steven Caulker

The silence at #avfc is killing me. Glued to Twitter hoping for a club statement, should I even expect 1? Just some clarity on our situation. If we can keep JT, Grealish, Johnstone & Chester I’ll be delighted Think snodgrass will be to much tho. Wholesale change is not needed!

I can see Grealish staying next season, he may be the obviius choice to sell to raise funds. But i think he will put a block on that and stay to help. #avfc

If we make Chester captain and build around Grealish then I think we will have a good chance next year as we already have decent foundations, all depends of ffp of course #avfc

I’d quite happily sacrifice selling maybe Kodjia, Adomah & 1 other to keep Grealish, if he wasn’t injured for 3 months at the start of the season we finish 2nd in my opinion #avfc
