Jack Grealish is reportedly reconsidering his much-touted £100million move to Manchester City.
The Aston Villa captain is greatly admired by City boss Pep Guardiola, who is in the midst of preparing an offer for Grealish.
But according to talkSPORT, a source close to the 25-year-old said he was now ‘having second thoughts’ about the transfer.

In fact, the report suggests that Grealish could even go as far as signing a new contract with his boyhood club, who he has been with since he was six, even though his current deal does not run out until 2025.
Grealish was arguably the most popular member of Gareth Southgate’s England squad for Euro 2020, despite not featuring much in the tournament.
He has been consistently linked with a move away from Villa Park over the past few years in search of silverware and European football, but has always chosen to stay with the club he adores.

For their part, Villa have signalled their confidence that Grealish isn’t going anywhere by making him the face of the campaign to promote their new kit for next season.
As part of the promotion, Grealish spoke of his strong connection to the club, heightening rumours that he will stay.
‘Everyone knows what claret and blue means to me,’ he said.
‘I’ve been a Villa boy all my life, and I love playing for this club.’
Villa are reportedly looking to agree a one-year contract extension with Grealish that would take his salary above £150,000-a-week.
Grealish admitted in promotional content that he felt a deep connection with the club
