Aston Villa have no intention of selling Jack Grealish

Fri 25 June 2021 | 13:18

Although Manchester City are interested in Jack Grealish, Aston Villa have no intention of selling the 25-year-old as they are building a team around him.

It is understood that

Aston Villa

have not received any bids for

Jack Grealish

and also the club would not welcome any approach for their captain as they are in talks with the 25-year-old over a new and improved contract.

Aston Villa have the intention of building a team around Grealish and their summer recruitment plans are based on players who will play with him like Emi Buendia and Ashley Youn, whom they have already signed.

On the other hand,

Manchester City

want to sign Grealish after

Euro 2020

, however, their priority is signing a striker, with their top target

Harry Kane

and

Erling Haaland

.

Manchester City offered £100 million for Kane earlier this week. It seems the Premier League champions would need to sell players if they wanted to sign Kane or Haaland as well as Grealish.

Kaveh Solhekol told

Sky Sports

:

"Jack Grealish is going to be hot property this summer. Lots of clubs would like to sign him, but he has a long-term contract and Villa do not want to sell him.

"It is unlikely City would sign a striker of the caliber of Kane or Haaland, and Grealish as well. The only way that could happen is if they sold players.

"Do Villa want to sell Grealish? The answer is a resounding no. He's their captain and has four years left on his contract.

"We know Grealish will be talked a lot about this summer, we know a lot of clubs want to sign him, but in transfer sagas, you have to look at who holds the power.

"At the moment, that is Villa. Yes City like him, Guardiola is an admirer, but it's going to be very difficult to get him."

Graeme Souness believes if Kane is ever going to leave Tottenham, it has to be this summer.

"There are two prizes out there: Haaland and Kane," Souness said in May.

"With Haaland, there is still a question mark, but that is getting smaller with every week. With Harry, there are no question marks.

"But I think for Harry Kane, it is this year or never.

"For Spurs to become what Harry would want isn't going to happen during his career. It's not going to happen during his time at the football club. He hasn't got six, seven years to wait.

"I don't think that [£200m] would be outrageous. I don't think Pep is being entirely honest when he says they won't go big this year. I think they will."
