Aston Villa are reportedly gearing up for an incredible bid to bring Jack Grealish back from Manchester City in the upcoming summer transfer window. Grealish left Villa Park for the Etihad Stadium in 2021, fetching a club-record £100 million transfer fee.

Although he became a regular starter last season, the 28-year-old winger has seen his role diminish this campaign, largely due to the arrival of Jeremy Doku. Grealish has made just 10 starts in 20 league appearances this season, scoring three goals and providing one assist.

According to Football Insider, Manchester City are open to selling the England international this summer if the right offer comes along. The report suggests that Aston Villa would jump at the chance to re-sign their former captain, who remains a fan favorite at Villa Park.

One significant advantage for Villa is their imminent qualification for the Champions League, which could make the move even more appealing for Grealish. However, his wages, reportedly around £300,000 a week, pose a major hurdle. To meet this salary, Villa would need to allocate a substantial portion of their wage budget to one player.

Even if Grealish agrees to a pay cut, his contract with Manchester City runs until 2027, meaning Villa would likely need to pay a considerable transfer fee to bring him back. While City haven't specified an exact asking price, it's expected to be less than the £100 million they spent on him, potentially allowing Villa to make a profit on the sale if a deal is struck.

Grealish, who came through Aston Villa's academy, made 213 appearances for the club before his high-profile move to Manchester in 2021.
