What Grealish tweeted about United
Manchester United fans have been sent into a frenzy after they unearthed a number of Jack Grealish’s old tweets about the club.
Aston Villa captain Grealish is a summer target for United and could be about to play his final match for his boyhood team this weekend.
The 24-year-old starred for Villa on Tuesday night as they defeated Arsenal to boost their hopes of remaining in the Premier League, and after the match Grealish was coy when asked on his future.
“I’m not too sure at the moment,” he told Sky Sports. “I have one aim and that’s to keep this club in the Premier League.”
Many supporters took those comments as evidence Grealish would favour a move to Old Trafford at the end of the season, but their hopes were further amplified when a number of his old tweets soon resurfaced.
First up was a tweet from February 2012 in which Grealish tweeted his excitement to watch United take on Ajax away in the Europa League round of 32 clash.
“Off to sleep for a bit then up for the Untied game tonight #RedDevils!!”
A month later and Grealish further confirmed his allegiance as he watched United face Chelsea in the FA Youth Cup semi-final. He tweeted: “Now watching Chelsea vs Man United in youth cup semi-final, best of luck to both teams! Some great players on show, come on United!!!!!!”
