💎 Man City begin direct talks with Aston Villa for Grealish

Premier League champions Manchester City have stepped closer to signing one of the best talents in England.

Grealish was initially linked with a move to Manchester United, before Aston Villa's reported high price discouraged United. Additionally, the Red Devils signed Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for around £72.9m.

With City having lost Leroy Sane last season, and the club's financial means, Grealish has emerged as the ideal replacement at left wing.

After a series of reports, the Citizens have now begun formal talks to sign the 25-year-old Englishman, according to Fabrizio Romano.

"Manchester City are now in direct contact with Aston Villa for Jack Grealish. Negotiations ongoing to reach an agreement - not gonna take long, decision to be made in the next days. Aston Villa have already offered Grealish a new contract. They hope to keep him," Romano tweeted.

Meanwhile, the Citizens are set to take on lower division side Barnsley on Saturday.
