All summer there have been a lot of speculations regarding the return of former Red Devils player Ravel Morrison to England.
The Lazio midfielder was reported to be set to join English Championship side Aston Villa as they fight to return to top flight football. On Twitter, Morrison was a major subject of debate until the owner of the club Dr. Tony Xia ended the speculations.
“Until today, he hasn’t been on our list,” Dr Tony tweeted from his personal handle. Villa are on the market for a creative player to boost the attack of the squad. They have been linked with a transfer of Patrick Bamford from Chelsea on a loan deal, with many factors yet stalling the deal. Morrison’s transfer to Villa remains uncertain, as other clubs that have been linked with the player this summer.
Ravel was in the news this summer when he posted a link to a video of a chipped penalty whilst in action for Lazio in pre season games. He posted the link during the heat of argument about the Paul Pogba deal. Morrison was one of Manchester United’s best prospects, and he partnered with the Frenchman in the youth team. He was skilful, athletic and balanced as a player. Red Devils legend Rio Ferdinand even disclosed that he remains the best youth player he has seen at Old Trafford, but the player just couldn’t live up to his potential.
Morrison was talented, but his carefree attitude, poor time-keeping and gangster court cases forced Sir Alex Ferguson to push him out of Old Trafford, and his career started spiralling downwards. Morrison moved to Italy, after his West Ham move. He started well in Italy, but soon repeated his failures in off the pitch attitude. His coach complained of his fitness, attitude and other issues. He is set to remain in Italy, as the moves to England are not happening.
