Man City becoming frontrunners to sign Grealish; Chelsea to ‘break the bank’ for Haaland

Manchester City are moving to the front of the queue to sign Jack Grealish in the summer, while Chelsea are preparing to smash their transfer record to bring Erling Haaland to Stamford Bridge.

Grealish could head to the Etihad

If Jack Grealish is to leave Aston Villa in the summer, the Daily Mail report that the England attacker is being tracked by Manchester City in a possible £100m deal.

Having only signed a new long-term deal with Villa last summer, Grealish is still wanted by the champions-in-waiting, after a proposed move to City's rivals, Manchester United didn't gain traction last season.

While Villa would not want to sell their talisman, the Mail report that the Villa ownership 'would not stand in his way' if he expresses his desire to make the step up to playing for a team regularly challenging for trophies.

While Grealish is odds-on at 1/5 to stay at Villa after this summer's transfer window closes, he's now priced at 2/1 with Unibet to be a Manchester City player at the end of the window.

Chelsea prepared to smash transfer record for Haaland, on one condition

Should Thomas Tuchel lead Chelsea to the Champions League next season, reports say that the Stamford Bridge outfit could be prepared to 'break the bank' to sign Erling Haaland this summer.

The Sun say that Borussia Dortmund have put an enormous price tag of £130m on the prolific striker, who may spark a bidding war between several of the biggest clubs in the game.

Haaland's agent Mino Raiola has said previously that only around 10 clubs could afford the attacker's services, four of which being in England.

Haaland is heavily linked to a move to Manchester City, with Betfair pricing them as 4/6 favourites to be the Norwegian's next club, with Chelsea available at 3/1.

Juventus worried over Ramsey call-up despite injury

Aaron Ramsey has recently picked up a thigh problem that had supposedly ruled him out of action until after the international break, with Juventus 'alarmed' at his inclusion in the Wales squad for their upcoming matches.

The midfielder had been expected to recover over the gap in league fixtures, and Juve are concerned at his travelling with COVID-19 cases on the rise again in many countries in Europe, according to the Daily Mail.

Andrea Pirlo is an admirer of the Wales international, who said of his player: "He has physical problems which mean he struggles to have a run of games because after every two or three games he has to sit out - but he is such an intelligent player that when he is available, he is precious."

With the Euros just a few months away, however, Wales are looking to solidify their squad in the tournament, but are rank outsiders to win the trophy at 125/1 with Paddy Power. England, France and Belgium are joint-favourites among the bookies to win the Euros, around the 5/1 and 6/1 mark across the board.
