Man City make first 75m Jack Grealish move after Thomas Tuchel’s ‘dangerous’ Chelsea claim

0 Jack

Manchester City are determined to beat Chelsea in the race to sign Jack Grealish, and are even poised to make their opening offer for Aston Villa’s £100million-rated captain.

Villa have no desire to sell the 25-year-old talisman unless a huge offer – likely to be a British record in the region of £100million – comes in.

Despite that fact, City are planning to test the waters early, and according to the Daily Mail, they’re expected to offer around £75million plus add-ons for Grealish, who is long admired by Pep Guardiola.

Whilst it’s likely that their initial offer will be rejected, the bid will also serve as a statement to Chelsea, who have been plotting to hijack City’s move behind the champions’ backs.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb , Grealish is seen as the ideal man to take Chelsea forward as the Blues try to meddle with City’s deal.

Although that seems surprising, it may actually make a fair bit of sense, especially considering what Tuchel said about Grealish ahead of his side’s final match of the Premier League season against Villa in May.

“Look at the statistics! Aston Villa with and without him are different teams,” Tuchel told Sky Sports . “He is involved in almost every offensive situation. He is very good at decision-making.

“He has a lot of composure in assisting, finishing and bringing people around him in top situations, dangerous situations to be able to score.”

It’ll be interesting to see who gets the upper hand in this transfer saga. City are of course still the favourites for his signature but now that the Champions of Europe have come calling, Grealish has a difficult decision to make.
