Jack Grealish is set for crunch talks over his future with Aston Villa next week amid interest from Premier League champions Manchester City.  

The 25-year-old midfielder has been on holiday in Mykonos after helping England reach the Euro 2020 final.

The Aston Villa skipper is expected to hold talks with the club’s hierarchy when he reports back for pre-season training, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a British-record £100million move as the Premier League champions target a major overhaul of their squad that also includes signing Harry Kane.  

Aston Villa are looking to convince Grealish to stay by reportedly offering him an eye-watering £200,000-a-week new deal. 

The news could be a blow to Pep Guardiola, who is now also having to contend with the fallout from shocking revelations published exclusively by the Mail on Sunday which appear to show that the Champions League finalists inflated their income to get round Financial Fair Play rules by having millions of pounds funnelled into the club by Abu Dhabi.

Grealish only signed his last contract in September 2020 to keep him at the club until the summer of 2025. 

According to Sportrac, he is already comfortably Villa’s top earner on £120,000 a week, with Tyrone Mings and Ollie Watkins the next highest on £80,000 a week and £75,000 a week respectively.

If Grealish does sign the deal reported, it would make him one of the Premier League’s top earners.

However, the prospect of playing in the Champions League may make Grealish’s decision to stay at Villa Park more complicated.  

Despite being injured for much of the second half of last season, the midfielder enjoyed the best season of his career so far as he recorded six league goals and an incredible 12 assists, with only Kane (14 assists) producing more in England’s top flight in 2020-21.
