Man City’s Jack Grealish transfer plan – and what’s holding up the deal

Manchester City had a great season, winning the Premier League title and going the furthest they ever have done in the Champions League.

City reached the European final and faced fellow England club Chelsea but the Blues defeated them 1-0 thanks to a Kai Havertz goal.

The departure of Sergio Aguero, he signed for Barcelona earlier this month, has meant the Sky Blues are searching for a replacement striker.

Their prime candidate is England captain Harry Kane who looks likely to leave Tottenham this summer but he has also registered interest from their rivals Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

Mirror Football has collected a round-up of City transfer news so you can keep up to date with all the action.

Who will City sign in the transfer window? Comment below

Bernardo Silva is set to leave City

Silva exit likely

City talisman Bernardo Silva is likely to leave City in the transfer window and Pep Guardiola’s team are looking to take full advantage.

It’s been reported by Eurosport that Silva will move to Atletico Madrid and City will swap the star for Madrid’s Joao Felix.

While the deal is smart from the Premier League club, the league holders will miss the leadership of Silva.

City target Grealish

If Silva’s departure gives City a windfall they could make a play for Jack Grealish, according to Manchester Evening News.

And the publication also write that even if they don’t sell big players they could attempt to sign the Aston Villa and England star.

However, this seems unlikely with the budgets they have in mind for this summer and if they don’t sign the player clubs like Chelsea will be keen to snatch Grealish.

Kane deal complicated

One player who could impact City’s budget demands is Harry Kane with Tottenham expecting £100m for the England captain.

But if the star is to sign for City the deal becomes a bit complicated for Kane now the opening fixtures of the 21/22 Premier League have been revealed.

The Sky Blues will play Tottenham in the opening match of the campaign, a painfully ironic turn of events if Kane goes to City.

But any deal involving him will not take place until after the the Euros conclude on July 11, according to England manager Gareth Southgate.

He said: “I think it’s very unlikely that transfer deals will be done while we’re away.

“I think that’s different when we have our camps in September – very often we’re on that deadline moment and every now and then we’ve had to help facilitate a medical or a meeting between a player and a manager.

“I am very realistic about those things. We’re not going to stop phones ringing.

“We can’t control conversations that are going on in private, but I wouldn’t expect… I think most deals are done at the end of tournaments or they are done in the first week at the end of the season.

“I would expect anything with our players to be after the tournament.”
