Chelsea line up shock transfer for Manchester City star

Jack Grealish - Manchester City

Chelsea are reportedly considering a shock move for Manchester City star Jack Grealish. With ‘internal discussions’ already held about a potential transfer.

The Blues have big plans for the summer window with Mauricio Pochettino keen to bring in a new centre-back, winger and centre-forward.

Pochettino’s future at Stamford Bridge is increasingly uncertain. But the club’s hierarchy agrees with him on the areas that need strengthening.

Chelsea line up shock move for Jack Grealish

According to journalist Simon Phillips, Grealish is a player that Chelsea are seriously considering a move for in the coming weeks. He wrote on his Substack page:

Another winger I am told has been internally discussed at Chelsea recently, is Manchester City’s Jack Grealish,”

The 28-year-old has been linked with a return to his former club Aston Villa in recent weeks. And due to his bit-part role at City, there is a belief in the industry that he will be available for transfer this summer and also, he is likely to be open to moving to another club where he will have a more important role at.

Chelsea have good transfer relations with City and of course, have signed Raheem Sterling and Cole Palmer from them in recent years, both at reasonable fees.”

Grealish has been in and out of Pep Guardiola’s team this season. Making just 10 starts in the Premier League so far.

The arrival of Jeremy Doku at the Etihad has seen his minutes diminish further. Which has prompted rumours that the England star could move elsewhere

Chelsea are looking to sign a new potential replacement or upgrade on Raheem Sterling. As he isn’t part of the Blues’ long-term plans.

Sterling has interest from clubs in Saudi Arabia, although his preference would be to stay and fight for his place.

Grealish has the potential to be a great addition for Chelsea but reports suggest that Aston Villa and Atletico Madrid are also admirers of his.

He hasn’t really lived up to his price tag. However, and City have been tipped to cut their losses this summer.
