Jack Grealish Tipped To Emulate Two Former Premier League Stars After Manchester City Transfer

Jack Grealish has been backed to follow in the footsteps of Luka Modric and Gareth Bale by reaching a "whole new level" after completing his move to Manchester City.

That is according to Jamie O'Hara, who believes that the upcoming Premier League season will be "massive" for Grealish to "really show what he's about."

The Premier League champions are on the verge of smashing the British record transfer fee with a sensational £100m swoop for Grealish this summer.

Grealish has been a top summer target for City boss Pep Guardiola, despite Aston Villa's best efforts to keep hold of their club captain.

Speaking on talkSPORT, O'Hara believes that the 25-year-old soon-to-be City star will have more of an opportunity to showcase his skills under Guardiola.

"It's a great move for Jack Grealish I have to say, it's a hell of a lot of money for him," he said.

"Man City are going to be a joy to watch with Kevin De Bruyne and Jack Grealish, probably the two most creative players in the Premier League. It's going to be a fantastic watch to see what they do this season.

"It'll be interesting to see how good Jack Grealish gets now. He's been in and out of the England side but he is sort of the fans' favourite with the England punters and Villa as well but it'll be interesting to see if he goes to another level.

"I always look to Luka Modric and Gareth Bale who were brilliant at Spurs. They signed for Real Madrid and went to a whole new level. I feel Jack Grealish can do that.

"If he goes there now, this season's going to be massive for him to really show what he's about.

"He's going to have loads of the ball, they're going to dominate possession and he's going to be able to create so many more chances than he already creates."

Grealish is set to become one of City's top earners with a hefty £300,000-a-week salary, according to reports.

The England international is set to undergo his City medical on Thursday ahead of his proposed £100m move from Villa.

The deal for Grealish would eclipse the British record transfer fee (£93.25m) that Manchester United splashed out on re-signing Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016.
