According to The Independent, Manchester City are now the frontrunners to sign Aston Villa maestro Jack Grealish.

It seems Pep Guardiola has urged City to sign Grealish following a glowing recommendation from his own playmaker Kevin de Bruyne.

“I rate him very highly,” said De Bruyne. “He’s somebody I mentioned before, talking to the teammates at City, in a random conversation.

“In England they talked about creative problems in midfield, but he brings that to a team. He deserves a shot.”

Grealish had previously been linked with a move to Manchester United but it seems City will be the ones to secure his signature in what they hope will be a relatively affordable transfer.

Guardiola has a large task ahead of him as he begins another rebuild at the Etihad and he believes the 25-year-old England international will be an integral part of that project.

Grealish recently signed a contract extension with Villa which will keep him at the club until 2025.
