Fabrizio Romano provides important transfer update on Jack Grealish’s Manchester City future



| Last Updated:


An important update has been provided on the Manchester City future of Jack Grealish amid ongoing reports concerning a potential exit for the England international.

The 28-year-old has been handed a rare opportunity to have the entirety of the ongoing summer free from football duties, having been left out of Gareth Southgate’s England selection for the European Championships in Germany.

The former Aston Villa captain struggled for the most part of last season through fitness and injury concerns, whilst failing to put together a run of form in Pep Guardiola’s starting line-up to displace Jeremy Doku consistently.

However, the understanding in various quarters is that the Catalan coach has reassured Jack Grealish personally of his place in Manchester City’s plans for the forthcoming season, and perhaps beyond should Guardiola extend his own contractual agreement.

But that has not stopped some sections of the media from speculating about a potential transfer away from the Etihad Stadium for Grealish, with one highly-rated source for transfer information stepping in to offer clarity on the situation.

Speaking in a new column for CaughtOffside, transfer market insider Fabrizio Romano issued an important update concerning Jack Grealish, closing down the idea of potential movement around the England international on a transfer front.

“There have been some new rumours about Jack Grealish and his future at Manchester City possibly being in doubt. Still, I can honestly say I don’t have any concrete info on Grealish now,” Romano clarified.

He continued, “I’m not hearing anything new, decisions, bid or anything… It’s all quiet around him at Man City now. We will see.”

Grealish returned to Manchester City earlier this month in an attempt to get ahead on fitness and preparations for the pre-season period, with Pep Guardiola and his players jetting to the United States for a four-game tour of the east coast of the country.

City’s pre-season fixture schedule kicks off with a meeting against Scottish Premier League champions Celtic, before matches against FC Barcelona, AC Milan, and Chelsea follow before their FA Community Shield clash against Manchester United at Wembley Stadium.

One player who is not expected to be present on the tour, despite previous expectations of a showcase upon joining the club, is new signing Savio. The Brazil international is set to train with the club for the first time when they return to England in early August.
