Journalist Mike McGrath has issued his take on Jack Grealish’s future at Aston Villa.

Grealish has been linked with a move to Manchester in recent weeks, with reports claiming that Citizens boss Pep Guardiola wants to bring the England to the , but Villa value Grealish at £100 million.

Do you expect clubs to pay a three figure sum for Grealish?

McGrath talked about Grealish’s future at Villa when he appeared on the latest video of Stretford Paddock’s Tier 1 podcast. He made it clear that he expects someone to make an offer for Grealish and clubs will try to sign him this summer.

Grealish was linked with a move to Manchester United last summer, but the midfielder ended up signing a new contract at Villa.

McGrath discussed Grealish’s future and said: “From what we hear, they [Man City] really like him. Villa seem to be quite active in the transfer market as well, in terms of getting some really good attacking players like [Emiliano] Buendia.

“I’m not saying that it’s a straight replacement, but there’s certainly some noises there that Grealish had that kind of season where one of the top teams would definitely try and get him.

“He’s a real match-winner and I’d expect somebody to make a bid for him. Whether they get him or not, I don’t know, but I think people will definitely try.”

First up in this Gareth Barry quiz, which club did Villa sign the midfielder from?

Not just that, the 25-year-old has been very active in the goalscoring front for Villa over the last two Premier campaigns. He has directly contributed to 32 league goals over a couple of seasons, which is a pretty impressive stat.

Because of all those factors, Villa have every reason to demand a pretty high fee for Grealish and if clubs want him, they should be prepared to pay a high amount.
