Manchester City ‘willing to listen to offers’ for record-breaking £100 million signing in shock transfer decision



| Last Updated:


Jack Grealish could reportedly be sold by Manchester City this summer, just three years after completing a record-breaking £100 million move to the Etihad Stadium.

The 28-year-old moved to Manchester City in 2021 for a record-breaking nine-figure sum, as Etihad officials smashed the club-record and British-record to sign the England forward from boyhood club Aston Villa.

Grealish, who was handed the number 10 shirt upon arriving at Manchester City, has made 122 appearances and won six trophies since moving to east Manchester from Villa Park.

The Englishman made 50 appearances during the Blues’ historic treble-winning campaign, as Manchester City won the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and Emirates FA Cup last season, becoming the first club since Manchester United in 1999 to complete such an achievement.

Pep Guardiola’s side could complete a domestic double this season, with the potential to retain both the Premier League title and lift the Emirates FA Cup trophy.

Grealish has seen his campaign plagued by a number of injury issues, with the forward making just 21 starts for Manchester City so far this term.

The 28-year-old has started five of the Sky Blues’ last six matches across all competitions, including both fixtures against Real Madrid and Saturday’s Emirates FA Cup semi-final win over Chelsea at Wembley Stadium.

Grealish is contracted at the Etihad Stadium until 2027, however Football Insider sensationally claim that Manchester City are ‘willing to listen to offers’ for the forward this summer, with the ‘growing possibility’ of a ‘shock sale’ ahead of the 2024/25 campaign.

The England international is reportedly considered as ‘dispensable’ by Guardiola, and could therefore be sold for a ‘big fee’ to ‘raise funds’ for other purchases.

Manchester City are expected to make a number of first-team additions this summer, with plans to bolster Guardiola’s midfield and attacking options.

Bayern Munich pair Joshua Kimmich and Jamal Musiala have both been mooted, alongside Premier League and Brazilian duo Lucas Paqueta and Bruno Guimaraes.

Any sale of Grealish is currently considered unlikely, given Manchester City are already bracing for the potential departure of Bernardo Silva, and some uncertainty surrounding the long-term future of Kevin De Bruyne.
