Villa to ‘test Norwich’s resolve’ for midfielder if £100m Grealish leaves

Aston Villa will “test Norwich City’s resolve” for Todd Cantwell should Jack Grealish secure his £100m move to Manchester City, according to reports.

Grealish was involved in 16 goals from his 26 Premier League outings for Aston Villa last season. He is now being targeted by Man City.

‘s side have met the Villans’ £100m asking price for the midfielder and



have reported that should Grealish leave, will target Norwich City’s Todd Cantwell. They state that Dean Smith’s side will test the Canaries’ resolve this summer.

The report adds that it would take a huge offer for Norwich to sell Cantwell, as they have no intention to sell the Englishman.

Elsewhere, even if he does leave this summer:

“I played for Tottenham, my boyhood club, and it was a dream to play for them.

“But for Jack Grealish, he’s been at Aston Villa for a long period of time now, he’s done great things, he’s already a legend.

“If he leaves tomorrow and goes to Man City, he’s still going to be an Aston Villa legend.

“He has to go to Man City because he will guarantee himself trophies. He will win the Premier League, he will win the FA Cup, the League Cup and he will probably win the Champions League as well.

“It’s only a matter of time before Man City do eventually get it over the line, and I think if you’re signing players like Jack Grealish and they’re talking about Harry Kane, too, they’ll win a Champions League.

“Jack is not going to do that at Aston Villa. As much as Aston Villa are going out and signing players and are going in the right direction, and they are a huge football club, they’re still ten years behind where Man City are right now.

“In ten years’ time, Jack Grealish probably won’t be a footballer anymore, he’ll be at the end of his career, so he needs to go to a club now, like Man City, who are going to offer him a huge contract and will guarantee him success and trophies.

“So, when he does retire he looks back, he can say: ‘I played at the top level and won everything’.”

“I know a lot of people who have taken that step. They have been an assistant then maybe gone to Europe for a job.

“Everything he’s said has been the right thing. It’s just a bit surprising how quickly it’s happened. There wasn’t even a hint.

“The season is so close as well, it’s an odd time to do it. I’m shocked.
