Having been a part of Aston Villa’s promotion to the Premier League last season, Tyrone Mings has well and truly established himself as a cornerstone of the first-team at the club. The England international spent the previous campaign on loan at Villa Park, before completing a £20m permanent move from Bournemouth earlier in the summer.

And this season has seen him play 16 times in the Premier League alone, completing the full 90 minutes in every top-flight game until he was forced off mid-way through the first-half of his side’s clash against Leicester at home. According to The Daily Star, Mings is now of interest to Manchester United, with the Red Devils reportedly keen to continue their focus on targeting British players.

Some fans suggested that they would be open to potentially selling Mings despite him only permanently arriving in the summer, with a few supporters quoting figures they would be happy to accept for his exit.

A couple of fans of the Villa side questioned United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s thinking behind wanting to sign him, with one supporter in particular stating that he has “no chance” of signing Mings.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified Aston Villa and England centre half Tyrone Mings as one of his three main January transfer targets alongside James Maddison and Jadon Sancho.

After only arriving on a permanent deal in the summer, it is difficult to see Villa accepting a bid anytime soon. But money talks after all, and if the Red Devils get close to a fee in the region of what they spent on Harry Maguire, then Smith may feel he has a decision to make in the best interests of the club.
