Jack Grealish might just be sent out on loan.
The England international has struggled to quite hit the levels he did with Villa at Manchester City.
The Cityzens coughed up £100m for him which made him the most expensive British player of all time.
He has shown only a few glimpses of brilliance and according to Tony Cascarino he needs to step up to continue in Pep’s XI.
“Jack has got an issue. You can’t be a £100m player and be OK, your standard is higher than that. City’s standard is higher than that and he has been six out of ten too often,” Cascarino said on TalkSPORT.
“At the end of the season, if he doesn’t pick up his standards, what we know he’s capable of and why they paid £100m for him, he’ll probably be loaned out or he might end up back at Villa. He’s not playing well enough consistently for Man City. I’m not talking about being OK, six out of tens. He should be eight or nine. He’s got so much quality.”
