According to reports in The Sun, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is considering making a summer move for Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, and Red Devils supporters have been quick to have their say on the link.
The Sun says that United like the 22-year-old’s driving runs from deep-lying positions in the middle of the park, and obviously feel that the Republic of Ireland international can add something alongside the likes of Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba in midfield next season.
Grealish certaily looks more likely to leave Villa this summer after they failed to win promotion back to the Premier League on Saturday following their Championship play-off final defeat against Fulham at Wembley.
Man United supporters, who are desperate for one 22-year-old to remain at Old Trafford this summer, took to social media to give their thoughts on the link to the midfielder, and they were unimpressed.
While one said “I don’t think he’s a United player”, another said “Scott McTominay is actually better”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Frankly, I’d be surprised if there is any interest in Grealish from #MUFC. Saying that, it wouldn’t be out of character for United, and it would be a fantastic platform for Grealish, but I can’t see Mourinho putting faith in him, especially since Mata can’t get in the side. #AVFC pic.twitter.com/qbB6aT3TDs
