19 Goal Premier League Star Drops Big Transfer Hint Amid Interest From Man United

Manchester United target Ollie Watkins has hinted that he will stay at Aston Villa next season.

The Red Devils have been tipped to make an “audacious swoop” for the England international, who scored 19 Premier League goals as Villa secured fourth spot.

However, speaking about his personal ambitions, Watkins said he is keen on playing in the Champions League:

“We have been tremendous all season – very consistent – and we finished where we deserved – with Champions League football coming to Villa Park.

“Next year will be very special. What happened at Palace was poor – individually and collectively – but this doesn’t tell the story of our season. We’ve been great all year.”

“On a personal note, I’ve been consistent. There’s not much more I can do. It was the aim – to get to 20 goals – but there’s always next season. Has it been a breakthrough? Yes. But I wasn’t surprised by how well I’ve done because of all the hard work I’ve put in. And next season will be better, I’m sure of that.”

Signing Watkins was a long shot
United’s interest in the 28-year-old was somewhat surprising considering that the forward had only signed a four-and-a-half-year contract extension back in October.

Erik ten Hag’s side are said to have a rather limited transfer budget and, while they are keen on recruiting a No.9, Watkins would probably have been outside of their price range anyway. The likes of Chelsea and Arsenal have also been linked with the player.
