Man Utd transfer target Jack Grealish drops biggest hint he will stay at Aston Villa ahead of Carabao Cup final – The Sun
JACK GREALISH has dropped the biggest hint yet that he wants to stay at Aston Villa beyond the end of the season.
The Villans captain, 24, came through the youth ranks at his beloved club and is adored as the hero of Villa Park.
The £80million-rated man is wanted by Manchester United in a big-money move this summer as the Red Devils look to bring in some more creativity into the midfield.
Bruno Fernandes arrived in January and has provided a much-needed boost but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be determined to get another playmaker in.
As revealed by SunSport, United are still hopeful of landing a double swoop for Grealish and close pal James Maddison of Leicester.
But speaking ahead of the Carabao Cup final, Grealish revealed he wants to stick around at Villa, break into the England squad and win trophies with his boyhood club – and he has the chance to do that at Wembley on Sunday when Dean Smith's side face Villa.
Grealish said: “Cup finals are the games you dream of playing in as a kid and, being an Aston Villa fan, leading my boyhood club out.
“It always touches me before the game when you go past the pubs and the Villa fans are everywhere.
“If any how I could get my hands on that trophy it would be a dream come true. I know what I want to do in my career: play for Aston Villa, play for England and win trophies. That’s the aim.
