Aston Villa star Jack Grealish has deleted an old tweet that shows his admiration for Manchester United.

The Villa captain is looking set for a move to United’s rivals Manchester City, as City are believed to have met the transfer fee demanded by Aston Villa.

Meanwhile, an eagle-eyed fan has noticed how Grealish has deleted his tweet from 2012, which saw him post about Manchester United.

The tweet from 2012 read: ‘Love listening to Drake while going sleep. Off to sleep for a bit then up for the United game tonight #RedDevils!!’

Manchester United have been linked with Grealish in the past, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has rather settled for a move for Manchester City academy graduate Jadon Sancho.

It’d be interesting to see the kind of reception Sancho will get against his former club when the two sides meet next season.
