Jack Grealish will hand in a transfer request to pursue a move from Aston Villa to Manchester City when he returns from his summer holiday, according to reports. 

The Premier League champions are believed to be willing to smash the English transfer record by offering £100million for the playmaker.  

Grealish is set to return from his extended break next week, having been part of England’s heroic run to the Euro 2020 final.  

But City have reportedly made a huge offer for the 25-year-old and talks over a move are widely reported to be advanced.  

Grealish has spent his entire career at his boyhood club but it now seems likely that he might depart this summer.

Kane will also reiterate his desire to leave Spurs when he returns. 

The Three Lions captain has previously said that he wants an “honest” conversation with Daniel Levy about his future.

Guardiola is expecting positive developments on the transfers of Grealish and Kane next week as he finally begins stepping up his plans to defend the Premier League title.
