Ahead of rivals United with the Aston Villa captain relishing the prospect of joining Pep Guardiola’s star-studded squad, Man City jump to the head of the queue to land £100m-rated Jack Grealish this summer

Grealish signed a new five year contract on the eve of the season. Manchester United failed to come up with the cash to sign him. The 25-year-old is the hottest property in English football following his performances for Villa this season.

Grealish is enjoying the best season of his career and has been linked with an exit from Villa

Villa valued their captain at around £100million last summer and he has kicked on since, as has the club. Key in the covid-dominated economic climate is who will be able to afford him and City are best placed. Coach Pep Guardiola has previously described Grealish as ‘an exceptional player’.

Man United and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (R) were keen on Grealish last summer but may not be able to compete with City financially

Grealish is expected to be part of Gareth Southgate’s squad for the European Championships. Villa are loathe to sell their captain and have wealthy owners. City are also monitoring developments with Sporting Lisbon left back Nuno Mendes and have discussed Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
