Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola reportedly regards Aston Villa star Jack Grealish as a top priority transfer target for this summer.
The England international has been in superb form for Villa in recent times and it seems inevitable that they’ll find it hard to keep hold of him for much longer.

According to ESPN, City sense that they may have been boosted in their efforts to sign Grealish after Villa’s recent move for Emi Buendia in that area of the pitch.
The report adds that Grealish would likely cost around £100million, and that Guardiola views him as ideal to link up with Phil Foden at the Etihad Stadium.
It’s said that Guardiola feels the pair could be ‘devastating’ together, as per ESPN’s report.
Harry Kane also remains a top target for the Premier League champions, according to ESPN, and it’s hard to imagine anyone catching Guardiola’s side in next season’s title race if they can secure both Kane and Grealish to strengthen their attack.
City would struggle to find better long-term replacements for Sergio Aguero and David Silva, who were both key figures for the club for so long.
Jack is going nowhere. The owners at Villa are committed to building a team and infrastructure to match and compete with the top 2 in the land, and become a successful team in Europe. He is fully aware of that and is as excited as the fans at being a huge part of the future, and becoming a legend at the club he loves.
Why do journalists persist in printing this rubbish?. Buendia is not a replacement for Grealish. He was bought to augment the side with Jack in it. We have very rich owners and Villa have no need to sell.
Jack plus our boyhood fun Haaland pleased pep!
Don’t forget Haaland after jack Grealish please Txiki do it for us!……….. City forever!
Don’t forget Haaland after Grealish please! City forward!
