Reliable reporter John Percy claimed on Friday that Manchester City have made a £100m offer for Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.
And, as to be expected, his post had plenty of Villa supporters talking on social media.
Do you think Grealish will leave Villa this summer?
Should Villa accept the £100m bid, Villa would receive a Premier League record fee for the 25-year-old, eclipsing Manchester United’s £89m move for Paul Pogba.
Grealish is set to return to Villa training next week following his holiday after the Euros, however, Percy claims City are hopeful of reaching an agreement in the next few days.
Villa fans react
Percy shared the news regarding City’s offer for Grealish on Friday lunchtime on Twitter. These Villa fans were quick to interact with the update, with one labelling it as a Percy ‘own goal’.
“Oh my god”
“WOW. I think he’s gone.”
“It’s game on now!! Can our owners hold their nerve, or will £100Millon convince them to sell up? A nervous few days for us all.”
“Percy at the back posttt with an own goal “
“He’s gone then.”
