Last transfer news Aston Villa chief Purslow plotting potential manager change - Sources breaking sport news
MetiNews.Com - Football Insider can reveal how Aston Villa chief executive Christian Purslow is plotting a potential manager change at the club
Breaking News ! 674590411">Aston Villa have their eye on a potential manager change as they hoped they would be in the top six this season, Football Insider understands. This site revealed on Thursday (8th April) that the ambitious Midlands giants have a “strong interest” in luring Steven Gerrard from Rangers. A Villa source has provided further detail on the club’s ambitions and how far they are willing to go to challenge the Champions League elite. The masterplan is to regularly push for a top-four spot in the coming seasons and the hope was that this season would further cement their status among the elite with a top-six finish and a place in Europe. That now seems very unlikely following a mixed run that leaves Dean Smith’s side ninth in the table and seven points adrift of Liverpool in seventh.

But Villa’s owners, as well as having deep pockets, are hugely ambitious.
Edens and Sawiris have pumped around £400million into Villa since buying the club in 2018, with more than £250m spent on transfers.
They believe that being an established Premier League club is the absolute minimum ambition.
