ESPN’s Rob Dawson writes: “Manchester City have put together a £100 million ($140m) package in a bid to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa, sources have told ESPN.
“Aston Villa were informed on Friday that City are willing to pay £90m for the 25-year-old, while highly rated winger Morgan Rogers has also been proposed as part of the deal.
“City value Rogers, 19, at around £10m, bringing the overall outlay close to Villa’s £100m valuation of Grealish.
“Sources have told ESPN that Rogers, who is also wanted by Crystal Palace after an impressive loan spell at Lincoln City last season, would be open to a move to Villa Park.”
Will Aston Villa be ready to sell Jack Grealish?
£90 million is a lot of money plus Villa will also get the services of Moran Rogers, a like-to-like replacement for Jack Grealish.
Villa are not ready to part ways with Grealish this summer but at the same time, some experts believe that a sizeable offer could see them change their stance very soon.

The Villa Park outfit are in no hurry to sell the 25-year-old but Manchester City happen to be one of the biggest spenders in the European market and not a lot of clubs will be able to outbid them.
Also, Jack Grealish is currently valued at £58.5 million so a £100 million deal seems pretty fair for all the parties.
Manchester City have made their intentions pretty clear by making this offer and now the onus is on Aston Villa to come up with a response.
We have a feeling Villa will not want to cash in on their biggest asset this summer but should Jack Grealish himself asks for a transfer then Dean Smith’s side might have no other option but to hand him over to Manchester City.
