Jack Grealish could remain at Aston Villa because of a lack of options in the summer transfer window, according to former England international Danny Mills. Grealish has enjoyed an impressive season in the Premier League beginning Villa’s successful battle against the relegation.
He has long been linked with a move to Manchester United but Villa are set to demand a huge fee to consider letting the 24-year-old leave.
But Mills believes United do not need another midfielder to compete with Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba and says other top-flight clubs will be reluctant to part with the cash needed to land Villa’s captain.
“The big concern for Grealish is where he goes if he does leave,” Mills told Football Insider. “Manchester United are not looking for a player in that position with Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba. They do not need to fill that void.
“Does he go to City? No. Liverpool? No. Tottenham can’t spent that much money. His options are more limited than people think. It also depends what he wants. He may still want to be the big fish, be the captain and be the main man at a club. That is what some individuals want.”
Grealish scored six goals and provided eight assists in 36 top-flight appearances for Aston Villa.
