Hindsight is, as we are invariably told, a wonderful thing.
I wonder if anyone in the corridors of power at Old Trafford has nightmares about what might have been?
According to The Daily Mail, last summer Manchester United enquired about signing Jack Grealish, from Aston Villa but baulked at the asking price.
Aston Villa wanted a cool £65 million for the 25-year-old.
Since then, Grealish has come on leaps and bounds and can, quite rightly, be considered as a candidate for the coveted ‘Player of The Year’ award.
Our quoted source also champions the suggestion that Manchester United still have an interest in signing the player but that his price has now, if Aston Villa were to contemplate a sale, risen to a whopping £100 million.
What was it I was saying about hindsight?
A missed opportunity could cost Manchester United dearly if they wish to push on with this potential deal.
Manchester United v Aston Villa?
Manchester United to Win!
Aston Villa to Win!
