According to Eurosport, Aston Villa are privately open to selling Jack Grealish amid interest from Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
What’s the report?
It is being reported today that Villa are privately open to selling Grealish to Premier League champions City.
For a huge offer, of course.
The Villa are reportedly ‘adamant publicly’ that they will simply not sell Grealish.
However, according to the report, ‘privately there is a feeling a transfer can become possible’.
For Villa to sell the England international midfielder this summer, they will demand close to or more than the £89 million that Manchester United paid to Juventus for Paul Pogba in 2016.
Jack Grealish to Manchester City?
Grealish is one of the best attacking players in the Premier League.
The England international is a Villa fan, but a move to Premier League champions City could be very appealing.
The Citizens reached the Champions League final last season and will aim to win it in 2021-22.
Working under manager Guardiola and the chance to win major trophies could be very tempting for the 25-year-old.
The Villa no.10 scored six goals and gave 10 assists in the Premier League last season.
Grealish also gave two assists for England at Euro 2020.
