Manchester City are attempting to finalize a £100 million ($139 million) signing of Jack Grealish ahead of Saturday's Community Shield against Leicester City.

Pep Guardiola identified Grealish as a key target this summer.

Although the 25-year-old signed a five-year contract at Villa Park in 2020, City and Villa have both been made aware of the England player's desire to move to the Etihad Stadium during this transfer window.
