MANCHESTER UNITED target Jack Grealish hinted he may not be at Aston Villa next season – despite beating Arsenal to move out of the drop zone.
Skipper Grealish insists keeping Villa up is the only thing on his mind as they head to West Ham for Sunday’s dramatic Premier League finale.

But asked if Tuesday night’s 1-0 triumph could be his final Villa game, the England hopeful told Sky Sports: “I’m not too sure at the moment.
“I have one aim and that’s to keep Villa in the Premier League. That’s all I’m thinking about at the moment.”
Trezeguet’s cracker on 27 minutes saw off an Arsenal side who rested six players in a dismal display, totally contrasting from their rousing 2-0 FA Cup semi-final defeat of Manchester City at Wembley last Saturday.
And Grealish, 24, added: “It feels unbelievable. I thought it was deserved – we were outstanding today.
“I reckon we could have got another goal but we’ll take a 1-0 win all day against a great team like Arsenal.
“It has been a tense day but all we can do is focus on ourselves.
“It’s in our hands now. We have a massive game on Sunday at West Ham.
“It feels massive [to be out of the bottom three..
“We’ve conceded quite a few late goals this season but we trust in ourselves and we have trust in the management staff.
“It would mean everything to keep Villa up.”
Dean Smith’s fourth-bottom side have a minus-26 goal difference, one better than Watford, a place below them.
And the Hornets have a tougher-looking final-day trip to the Emirates Stadium.
