What’s the story?
Premier League champions City have made a bid of £100 million for Villa star Grealish, according to The Telegraph.
90min are reporting that Villa have accepted City’s offer and have given permission to Grealish and his representatives to discuss terms with the Citizens.
What does Stan Collymore think?
Former Villa striker Collymore has given his take on Grealish’s future on Twitter, as you can see below.
What should Jack Grealish do?
Grealish is a Villa fan and loves the club, who are also reportedly ready to offer him a new contract worth £200,000 per week to keep him.
That is a lot of money.
But Villa are not going to compete for the Premier League title anytime soon.
Unless there is some serious investment, the Villans are unlikely to become regulars in the Premier League top four.
City win league titles regularly and reached the final of the Champions League last season.
Then there is also Pep Guardiola, arguably the best manager in the world at the moment.
It is going to be extremely hard for Grealish to turn down a move to City.
Meanwhile, Football.London have reported that Villa are facing competition from Crystal Palace for Watford midfielder Will Hughes.
