CHRIS SUTTON: Jack Grealish would show a lack of ambition if he refuses Man City to stay with boys’ club Aston Villa … he has the talent to fit Pep Guardiola’s system
- Manchester City have emerged as the lead team in the race for Jack Grealish
- The 25-year-old plays for his boys’ club and clearly loves Aston Villa
- Now this summer he faces a huge decision about his future
- While it will be difficult to join the City team, Grealish has the talent to succeed
Jack Grealish is a confident young man and you don’t often get the chance in your career to move to a club that will dominate the game for years to come.
But the big question is, if he goes to Manchester City, will he play?
You’re looking at City’s options in Grealish’s field on the field – Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez, Ilkay Gundogan, Ferran Torres.

That said, if Guardiola is willing to spend £ 100 million on a player, he’s going to play.
Grealish is such a talented player and would fit right into Guardiola’s system of keeping the ball and dominating possession.
Regardless of what options City already has, if Grealish went there, I’m sure he would add something new.
The city already has a wealth of talent in their side and Grealish should work for a place
Guardiola appreciated the Englishman’s ability and Grealish would suit his system and playing style
He’s done great things at Aston Villa, and he’s loved by the fans there. Of course, they would be very disappointed to see their captain leave.
It wouldn’t be impossible for Grealish to reject such a move, but would rejecting City demonstrate a lack of ambition? I think so.
It’s a huge boost to hear that a manager like Pep Guardiola wants you. Grealish is now 25 and you want to finish your career by winning big trophies. He has a much better chance of doing that in City than in Villa.
