Grealish, 25, has been linked with a move away from Aston Villa this summer and the Premier League champions are said to be the favorites to sign the Englishman. Last summer, it was understood that Grealish was extremely close to completing a move to Manchester United but the deal didn’t come through and the midfielder signed a new contract with Aston Villa, one that would keep him at the club until 2025.
A new report from The Sun has only added fuel to the fire as it claims that Grealish’s agents are confident about Grealish moving to the Etihad Stadium this summer.
In what has been termed as a ‘masterstroke’, Grealish’s agents have convinced Aston Villa to part ways with their skipper after Euro 2020.
Aston Villa are said to have understood the fact that Grealish has reached a level worthy of featuring in the Champions League and the Villains will not stand in the 25-year-old’s way.
The midfielder has garnered praise from the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and City boss Pep Guardiola. No doubt, under Pep, Grealish will unlock his true potential.
City are said to be preparing a bid worth £100 million for the 25-year-old and Aston Villa are expected to accept that bid. If this deal goes through, City will have broken the British transfer record for Jack Grealish.
A few weeks back, Aston Villa were reluctant to sell their prized asset as Grealish’s contract would keep him at the club at least until 2025, meaning that the Villains were in no hurry to part ways with their skipper.
With 12 goals and six assists despite missing three months of action owing to an injury, Grealish just gave a glimpse of his abilities this season and City will be hoping to sign him and best, help him reach his true potential.
