EPL SPORTS GIST TRANSFER MANCHESTER CITY MAKING MOVE FOR ASTON VILLA’S JACK GREALISH By Admin Posted on July 30, 2021 2 min read 0 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Farouq Oduola A. Manchester City have begun talks with Aston Villa about bringing Jack Grealish to the club. City made their initial approach many days ago, according to reports, and channels of communication remain open. Villa do not want to move Grealish and have offered him a new and improved contract in an attempt to persuade him that his future belongs at Villa Park, despite the fact that his current contract, which was signed in September, has four years left on it. The club is clear that they want to develop their team around him, with Dean Smith’s summer recruitment plans focused on players who would play with Grealish rather than in place of him (he has already signed Emi Buendia and Ashley Young). Pep Guardiola is a big fan of Grealish, who has also been connected with England teammate Harry Kane, who has previously had a £100 million deal rejected by Tottenham. The Premier League champions will almost certainly have to sell players to raise the necessary finances to sign both players.
