If reports are to be believed, the 26-year-old could soon be joined by his England team-mate in Manchester, with The Telegraph claiming that Grealish, 25, is a top target for the Premier League champions heading into the summer transfer window.
Who would you rather Manchester City sign?
For Ball, it would be a move that could take Grealish up to the next level. Speaking exclusively to TIF about City’s reported interest in the Villa captain, he said:
“If you look at Sterling, he probably thought he was the finished article, but then Pep demanded more. [Sergio] Aguero, we probably thought was the finished article, but then Pep demanded more.
“Jack, if that happens, Pep will improve him as a player, not just about himself. Use the ball slightly better or standing in the right areas, those small little tweaks that Pep does to these world-class players who we think are finished articles. Pep does seem to get these players to another level.”
According to Sky Sports, the club have already spoken to the player’s representatives.
