Jack Grealish has once again told friends he would be keen on joining Manchester City from Aston Villa this summer, Football Insider report.
The Lowdown: City’s interest
Pep Guardiola’s side have been linked with a move for the Villa captain for a number of months.
He allegedly told his friends in April over his interest in a move to the blue side of Manchester, and it appears as if he has reiterated his stance again.
Do you think Grealish will leave Villa this summer?
The Latest: Source shares Grealish update
Football Insider shared a story on the Villa captain on Thursday morning, claiming Grealish has told friends he remains very interested in a move north.
His future won’t be resolved until after this summer’s European Championships, with the report adding City’s Champions League final defeat to Chelsea last month won’t stop them in their bid to sign Grealish.
The Verdict: Villa in trouble?
Should Football Insider’s latest story prove accurate in regards to Grealish having his head turned, then Villa may well be in trouble.
The creative star wants to play Champions League football regularly, something Villa cannot offer him at this moment in time.
Guardiola’s side can give Grealish that opportunity, and should he have his heart set on an exit, it feels hard to begrudge him that move, now approaching the prime of his career.
Villa would need to make sure they are getting the best deal financially for Grealish, should they sell, and an impressive Euros under Gareth Southgate over the coming weeks could drive up his price tag to astronomical levels.
