Excl: Grealish's Agent Provides Key Information

With Jack Grealish tipped for a big-money transfer to Manchester City in this window, his agent has told Soccer Laduma there has been no contact between the Aston Villa captain and Pep Guardiola.

Man City Player Makes Shock Pep Claim

The 25-year-old playmaker has enjoyed two remarkable seasons in the English top flight since Villa won promotion to the Premier League in 2019, contributing to 32 goals in 62 league matches overall. 

His smart ball-carrying ability and seemingly fearless attitude has impressed fans, not only in England but around the world, with several clubs now unsurprisingly credited with an interest in his signature. 

Premier League champions Manchester City are believed to be among them, with The Athletic recently suggesting that the Citizens do not appear put off by his price tag, which is currently believed to sit at about £100 million (R2 billion).

The publication also suggested that the English giants would be willing to make moves for both Grealish and Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane should they raise enough funds, although it seems unlikely that City would splash upwards of £200 million (R4 billion) on two players in one window. 

Speaking briefly about his client's future, super-agent Jonathan Barnett told Soccer Laduma that Grealish "is under no pressure whatsoever" to get a move at this point in his career, amid suggestions the midfielder needs to take that crucial next step in joining a "big" club sooner rather than later. 

Barnett, who also represents the likes of Gareth Bale, Mason Mount and Luke Shaw, also insisted there has been no contact between the Three Lions attacker and City boss Guardiola due to the fact that Grealish is still a Villa player. 

The England star has amassed 213 appearances for the Birmingham-based club since his senior debut in 2014.
