Reliable reporter Fabrizio Romano dropped a little under-the-radar update on Manchester City’s pursuit of Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish following England’s win over Germany on Tuesday evening.
And his post has a number of Aston Villa supporters talking on social media.
Grealish has been linked with a move to Manchester City for a number of months. The 25-year-old came off the bench and played a part in both goals at Wembley, setting up Harry Kane to seal a place in the quarter-finals.
Romano posted on Twitter following the win regarding a number of England players who have been linked with moves during the Euros.
The transfer expert claimed ‘nothing advanced and no official bid from City’, concluding it ‘won’t be easy for City with Aston Villa’.
Villa fans react
Romano, who has over three million Twitter followers, tends to get thousands of likes and interactions on his transfer posts. However, his reply to the Villa fan mentioned had a limited number of likes and interaction, seemingly flying under the radar with just 30 retweets.
Here’s what these Villa supporters had to say last night in response to Romano’s answer.
“Thats the stuff I love to hear! Ready to hear you announce Grealish’s contract to Aston Villa soon aswell.”
“Preece mixing it with the big boys now“
“Villa want to win things, and have the money to compete. It’ll cost insane money to prize Grealish away. Especially considering his value just went up yet again.”
“After the Euros his value will have increased further still, and I don’t mean $. What he means to Villa is immeasurable.”
“Villa don’t want to sell”
