Manchester City Odds-On Favourites To Sign Jack Grealish

Manchester City are the overwhelming favourites to sign Aston Villa captain and England star Jack Grealish this summer - and a bid is reportedly coming after Euro 2020 has concluded.

Grealish, who is currently away with the Three Lions at this summer's European Championships, will be more than aware that he will have a big decision to make after the tournament - City or Villa?

And according to ESPN, City will make a move for the Villa star once the Euros has finished and it comes as no surprise, too, especially given his glowing form for both club and country.

As a result of his stellar performances, City boss Pep Guardiola has spoken of his admiration for Grealish - with the Spaniard labelling the 25-year-old as one of the Premier League's best playmakers.

If City were to make a move for the attacking midfielder, it would top the £89m that their rivals Manchester United paid for Paul Pogba in 2016. Talk about putting your money where your mouth is.

City, who are also interested in England captain Harry Kane, had their opening £100m bid for the wantaway Tottenham Hotspur striker rejected.

With another bid likely to be lodged in for Kane, rumours are still running rife on whether or not they will add Grealish to their star-studded squad, too. Just imagine how good City's team would look on paper with the duo in the side.

Signing Grealish will not be easy, though, especially having only signed a new deal at Villa Park last year which runs until 2025.

However, according to The Telegraph, the Midlands club are confident of tying down their captain to a new one-year deal in a bid to fight off the Premier League champions.

The proposed deal would reportedly see his weekly wage increase to over £150,000-a-week. Not too shabby that, eh?

In the last 24 hours, a whopping 72 per cent of all bets have backed City to be the next destination of the Three Lions star next season. But will the Villa talisman be wearing blue instead next season? Only time will tell.
