Former Aston Villa striker Kevin Philips believes Man City or United should spend £100 million on Villa captain Jack Grealish.
He says they should spend that amount of money on Grealish rather than Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.
Speaking about this, he said: “It is crazy – £100 million, but he is a player that is just getting better and better. At times he is theatrical but technically he is an outstanding player. He is one of the best players in the Premier League”.
“Would someone be willing to pay £100m? I think they would. I do not think it will happen in January but at some point soon I think someone will”.
“He is still young and he could play at the top for five, six, seven years”.
“Only the wealthiest clubs could afford to sign him, the likes of United or City. Sancho is worth over £100m and, for me, I would rather have Grealish”.
“I cannot see him leaving in January, he is committed to the club this season but I think he will reassess next summer.”
Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho have been the subject of transfer rumors all the year.
Man United could not afford to match Dortmund’s price evaluation of Sancho in the summer. They are expected to try next year.
Man City are seriously interested in Jack Grealish. He has been a sensation since returning to the Premier League last season. He was also namechecked by Pep Guardiola in his meetings with the club officials.
Both of these players are expected to cost more than £100m.
