According to a report from the Telegraph, Man City are set to join the race for Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish if we receive our asking price for want-away winger Leroy Sane – with manager Pep Guardiola seemingly being a huge admirer of the player. 

Grealish, who has impressed for the Villans this season as their arguable stand out performer, starting 30 Premier League matches for the club in their bid to avoid relegation, has been described by Guardiola this season as ‘one of the best players in the league‘ – waxing lyrical over the 24-year-old before our 2-1 Carabao Cup final victory in February.

Indeed, reportedly commanding a £100,000-per-week salary, Grealish has turned the heads of major competitors – including Man United as well as City.

Yes, bring him to the EtihadNo, not good enough

As per this report, Guardiola is not looking for a ‘like-for-like‘ Sane replacement but Grealish is seen as a star asset who can play both in midfield and as an attacker.

The Telegraph also claim that Bayern Munich’s reported £35 million bid for Sane has been completely rejected, with the Sky Blues only accepting offers above £50 million. 

Indeed, City would rather let the German’s contract expire before selling under market value, but if we do receive the correct bid, Grealish has now been earmarked as a would-be target.

The attacking midfielder, as well as the fact he’s impressed over 2019/2020, would also fill the homegrown quota and may even serve as a candidate to replicate David Silva’s influence in central midfield.

Described as ‘fantastic’ by Middlesbrough boss Neil Warnock, Grealish’s pedigree could be enticing for City, but we currently wait on Bayern’s moves for Sane ahead of a potential bid.
