City make first move for Grealish

Manchester City have entered negotiations with Aston Villa over the potential signing of Jack Grealish this summer.

The England international has four years remaining on his contract, but he has been tipped to pursue a bigger challenge.

Villa are keen on keeping him for next season, but they are open to sanctioning his sale if any club is willing to pay £100m.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Cityzens have now made direct contact with the Villains to land the Englishman.

The nature of the proposal has not been specified, but it has been mentioned that a decision will be made in the next few days.

Villa have offered a new contract worth £150,000-a-week to Grealish, but reports claim that he could move on this summer.

The 25-year-old has the hunger to win trophies after the Euro 2020 final heartbreak, and would relish the prospect of joining City.

Grealish was in fine form for the Midlands outfit last season, registering seven goals and 12 assists from 26 appearances.
