Despite Aston Villa’s superstar Jack Grealish being in the news, not for his stellar play on the field, but for breaking a mandatory stay at home order and subsequently getting in a wreck after a night of partying, Manchester United are still in hot pursuit of his talents in the summer.
After the incident, Grealish issued an apology shortly after, saying:
“I just want…to say how deeply embarrassed I am about what has happened this weekend. I got a call off a friend asking to go round to his. I stupidly agreed to do so. I obviously don’t want anyone else to do the same, so I urge everyone to stay at home and follow the rules and guidelines. I know for a fact that’s what I will be doing now.”
That apology was apparently enough for United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is a fan of the soon-to-be England international and has encouraged executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to keep the pressure on Villa with regard to his availability in the summer.
