Grealish joined the City last year after they paid Villa £100m to secure his services.
Aston Villa would struggle to convince Manchester City star Jack Grealish to move back to Villa Park, admits journalist Dean Jones.
A recent report has added that the Cityzens are willing to sell the 27-year-old, but Jones expects bigger clubs than the Villa to be in for him if the rumours are true.
As per reports of Football Insider, the Premier League winners are ready to sanction the sale of Grealish to fund a move for Jude Bellingham who is City’s primary target for 2023.
Grealish only joined the Citizens last year after they paid Villa £100m to secure his services. He won the Premier League title in his debut season.
He has probably not made the sort of impact you would expect from a £100m player. He has scored just four goals in 34 top-flight games for Manchester City.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jones said: “If Grealish was put up for sale, I don’t think he’d be going back to Aston Villa. There are big clubs, I think, that would be interested in signing Jack Grealish, and I don’t think he would be looking to go back at this point.”
“Jack has got the dribbling ability very few players have, and that kind of ability gets you on the edge of your seat,” Liverpool legend Graeme Souness said on talkSPORT earlier this season.
“But you’ve got to deliver at the end of it. It’s not just about dribbling past two players and then giving the ball away,” the Sky Sports pundit went on to add.
If Unai Emery wants a new attacking midfielder, then he is probably going to have to look elsewhere.
