Man Utd Want Shock Star?
Manchester United Want Shock Star?
Jose Mourinho's Manchester United have been linked with several top footballers ahead of next season, but a shock player has now emerged as one of the club's main transfer targets, despite a history of ill-discipline.
According to The Sun, the Red Devils are said to be tracking English-born starlet Jack Grealish following Aston Villa's failure to win promotion back to the Premier League.
The Villans were defeated 1-0 by Fulham in the Championship play-off final on Saturday, which ended their hopes of returning to the English top flight.
Grealish has been in fantastic form all season for the Birmingham club, and has plenty of experience playing in the EPL.
United are believed to see the 22-year-old as a potential target ahead of the 2018/19 campaign, which has come as a surprise to many.
The Villa attacker has shown plenty promise since his breakthrough to the club's senior side, but also has a reputation for being ill-disciplined.
In 2015, images of Grealish passed out in the middle of the road while on holiday in Spain did the rounds on social media, while there has also been video footage of the player taking part in other questionable activities, such as balloon inhaling.
The player also did himself no favours when he was dropped for the England U21 side in 2017 for turning up late to a team meeting.
On the football front, the player featured 34 times across all competitions for Villa in the 2017/18 campaign, scoring three goals and assisting a further eight strikes.
