Plenty of Aston Villa fans have been reacting to the news that Villa Park could play host to this year’s Champions League Final.
Both Manchester City and Chelsea booked their place in the last two following wins over Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid respectively earlier this week, with the final scheduled to take place in Istanbul on May 29.
However, according to reliable Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett, Villa have offered up Villa Park to UEFA as an alternative venue.
Do you think Villa Park should host the final?
Dorsett claims that huge changes to infrastructure at the stadium would have to take place should Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel’s sides face off in the Midlands, however, UEFA are thought to be committed to Istanbul at this moment in time.
Villa still have three home league fixtures to fulfil before the end of the season, with fans set to return for the visit of Chelsea on the final day.
Villa fans react
@villareport shared Dorsett’s claims on Twitter on Thursday afternoon.
It didn’t take long for a number of Villa fans to go wild at the update, with one describing it as ‘unreal’.
“This would be massive”
“OH. MY. GOD.”
“Make this happen”
