Manchester City would need to sell players if they want to sign Harry Kane or Erling Haaland as well as Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish this summer, says Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol.
Manchester City want to sign Jack Grealish after Euro 2020 – but Aston Villa remain determined to keep him and have opened talks about a new contract.
Villa will not welcome any approach for the 25-year-old and it is understood they have received no bids for him.
City are very interested but their priority is signing a striker this summer, following the departure of Sergio Aguero, with their top targets Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.
The Premier League champions made a £100m offer for England captain Kane earlier this week – but Spurs do not want to sell him.
Villa are adamant they want to build their team around Grealish and talks are ongoing about a new deal.
He joined the club he supports at the age of six and their summer recruitment plans – having already signed Emi Buendia and Ashley Young – are based on players who will play with him, not in place of him.
