Jack Grealish has fuelled rumours he could be set to join Manchester United, ‘liking’ a fan’s desperate plea on Twitter for him to complete a move to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.
The Aston Villa captain has long been linked with United and is understood to be on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s shortlist of big-name transfer targets, with the Norwegian in the market for attacking reinforcements after yet another year without silverware in the north west.
Reports this week suggest several members of United’s dressing room have been blown away by Grealish’s performances in the Premier League this season and view the gifted 25-year-old as an ‘appealing signing’.
Villa are in no hurry to part with Grealish given his vital importance to the team’s fortunes and will not consider selling their prized possession for anything less than a new British transfer record.
And while Grealish has remained tight-lipped and loyal to Villa until now, the England international dropped a big hint that he could be keen on leaving his boyhood club for the Theatre of Dreams on Friday night.

Reacting to a highlights reel of a precocious Wayne Rooney at Euro 2004, Grealish tweeted: ‘Nah this is just crazy [crying laughing emoji] 18 you know at the euros [shocked face emoji].’
Grealish then ‘liked’ a reply from a United supporter which read: ‘Please join United [praying hands emoji].’
I would like to see a centre-half come in next to Maguire. I think Lindelof is doing alright, I just think alright isn’t good enough to win a league.
‘Marquinhos from PSG, I think he’s be a brilliant centre-half next to Maguire but again you’re talking about a lot of money.’
