He is good, but is he good as Harry Kane is a question for discussion, however, the English obviously consider Jack Grealish a miracle worker as soon as Aston Villa is ready to offer him a contract equal to Tottenham's ace.
All in order to repel the attacks of Manchester City and keep the 26-year-old organizer of the game in Birmingham. England media placed the information that the leaders of Aston Villa will put a proposal for a new contract in front of Grealish, as soon as he returns from vacation after participating in the European Championship.
According to him, his earnings would be almost doubled. At the moment, he has 120,000 pounds (about 140,000 euros) in his account every Monday, and the club lures him with around 200,000 pounds (233,500 euros at today's exchange rate) in order to stay at Villa Park.
If Grealish accepts that offer, he would become one of the highest-paid football players in the Premier League. The mentioned 200,000 pounds a week are earned by Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Kane in Tottenham, Marcus Rashford in Manchester United or Mohamed Salah in Liverpool.
Best paid player
He could not endanger the undisputed leader in this category, David de Gea (375,000 pounds a week), but he would enter among the ten best-paid players in the English championship. Last September, Jack Grealish accepted a new contract pledging to stay at Aston Villa until the summer of 2025.
According to him, he already receives far more money than the next two highest-paid players in the team: national team colleague Tyrone Mings (£ 80,000) and striker Ollie Watkins (£ 70,000). , so the question is how the locker room would react to a possible salary increase.
On the other hand, Grealish is the best player on the team, last season he scored six goals and an assisted for 12 goals, in terms of the number of successful passes from English players in the Premier League, he is only behind Harry Kane (14).
And that is exactly why Aston Villa decided to break all the limits. The question is whether Manchester City want - and certainly can - to offer Jack more than his home club. They certainly can what Villa is not able to. A chance to play in the Champions League.
In Birmingham, such a scenario is difficult to achieve, almost impossible. Regular at the Etihad. We'll see if Grealish goes for the trophies. All in order to repel the attacks of Manchester City and keep the 26-year-old organizer of the game in Birmingham.
