Report: Man City will make Grealish transfer a priority if they sell Bernardo Silva
The publication is claiming that the Aston Villa star’s profile appeals to manager Pep Guardiola the most. He is thought to be a priority if the club sells the Portugal international.
Silva is being targeted by Atletico Madrid, who are keen on signing him this summer. Diego Simeone is thought to be an admirer of the midfielder, whom he sought in 2016.
Talking about his client’s future earlier in the season, Grealish’s agent claimed he’d have to wait and see how things panned out.
TBR View: Grealish transfer ticks all the boxes for Manchester City
Grealish has shown during his time in the Premier League that he can be a menace to opposition defences.
His outstanding ability to carry the ball past opposition defenders is second to none. The England international won more fouls than any other player last term (110).
However, he also possesses great vision and can cut through defences with his passing ability.
And in comparison to Bernardo Silva, the 25-year-old comes out on top. He scored seven goals and assisted a further 12 in all competitions, five more than Silva despite missing more than two months due to injury.
Guardiola has voiced his praise for the Englishman in the past. The former Barcelona manager labelled the Villa captain ‘incredible‘ back in October 2019.
Silva has dropped off massively this season, however, in Grealish City have an even better replacement. But, with the England international so highly-rated a transfer could prove expensive.
