Manchester City's Jack Grealish plans to return to Aston Villa at the end of his career. The summer newcomer told the Citizens to the Telegraph: “It is a club that is very close to my heart and I very much hope that I can return there. I always had that in the back of my mind. ” City paid the Villans 117.5 million euros for the England international.

The 26-year-old was part of Aston Villa's youth division for 13 years before joining the professional squad for seven years. The creative offensive player could also have ended up at Tottenham Hotspur or city rivals United. In 2018, the Spurs vied intensely for Grealish, but Villas club owners blocked the deal. Last year the Red Devils tried their luck: "I was really close to leaving, but in the end nothing happened."
