Manchester City Close In On Jack Grealish
Grealish, 25, is on the cusp of joining Pep Guardiola’s City after months of speculation linking him with a move away from boyhood club Aston Villa.
The England international returned from an extended holiday after Euro 2020 at the weekend and reported to Villa’s pre-season training camp in London for showdown talks.
Club chiefs hoped Grealish would sign a new contract to extend his stay at Villa Park, but the allure of the Premier League champions has proved too much for the playmaker to turn down.
Villa, for their part, softened their stance on their club captain after City tabled a stunning £100million bid last Friday.
Sporting director Johan Lange, CEO Christian Purslow and chairman Nassef Sawiris held talks with Grealish upon his return to training, where it became clear the player was keen to move to the Etihad.
