Future of Manchester City forward ‘far from assured’ despite nine-figure transfer fee and Treble success



| Last Updated:


The future of Manchester City forward and England international Jack Grealish is reportedly ‘far from assured’ ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window.

The former Aston Villa captain has endured a difficult campaign to date off the back of the ultimate highs in the top-level professional game and Manchester City’s Treble success in the 2022/23 season.

Grealish played an instrumental role in those successes, offering a unique dimension to Pep Guardiola’s attacking line and scoring crucial goals against the likes of Arsenal away from home en route to the Premier League title.

However, the ongoing season has seen the 28-year-old’s ability to be consistent on the field of play for Manchester City hampered by injury problems, with a number of groin issues preventing Grealish from breaking back into the squad in recent seasons.

Now a new report has hinted that concerns around Grealish’s inability to kick-on from last season could cost him his place in Manchester City’s squad entirely, with an important summer transfer market upcoming.

That is according to the information of HITC’s Graeme Bailey, who reports that the future of Jack Grealish at Manchester City is ‘in doubt’ amid plans from the Premier League champions to ‘enhance’ their squad this summer.

It is claimed that with the possibility of some ‘big-name departures’ from the Etihad Stadium in the coming months, one of the players whose future is ‘far from assured’ is the club’s £100 million forward Jack Grealish.

HITC report that there are ‘some concerns’ about Jack Grealish’s ‘lack of progress’ in the last 12 months, with fitness and form struggles hampering the Englishman’s ongoing season off the back of a Treble success.

Grealish was left out of Gareth Southgate’s most recent England international roster for the final break of the ongoing season, with the Manchester City man only recovering from his latest groin injury in time to make the substitutes bench for the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Pep Guardiola’s go-to left-sided winger is likely to be back in firm contention for the Premier League meeting against Arsenal at the end of the month, and will play an important role in the second-half of the season should he remain fit and available.

City take on Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley Stadium, whilst also battling against Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League alongside their intense Premier League routine in April.
