Manchester City Willing to Sell Their Record Signing to Fund Jude Bellingham Transfer

  • Manchester City are willing to sell their record-signing Jack Grealish early
  • Pep Guardiola’s side is reportedly highly interested in Jude Bellingham and could sacrifice Grealish to acquire the Borussia Dortmund man
  • Both Grealish and Bellingham are currently with the England squad at the World Cup

Jack Grealish could be sacrificed by Manchester City, who are open to bringing in youngster Jude Bellingham to the Etihad.

City have grown increasingly interested in Bellingham because of the young star’s form for both club and country.

While a January move is a bit of a stretch, Bellingham is almost certain to leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer, and a number of top clubs are lining up bids.

At the moment, the 19-year-old’s market value stands at £ 100 million, and City are well aware of this.

Because of Bellingham’s extremely high value, Football insider reports that City could look to free up some funds by selling their own superstars, and Grealish is among those on the chopping board.

Interestingly, Grealish was also signed for £100m from Aston Villa two summers ago, but the 27-year old has somehow stayed quite low in Guardiola’s pecking order.

At Manchester City this season, Guardiola seems to prefer the likes of Phil Foden, Erling Haaland, Bernardo Silva and sometimes Ilkay Gundogan to Grealish.

In 14 Premier League matches so far this season, Grealish has started in just six of them.

Furthermore, in 1039 minutes of league football, the winger’s only goal came in the 3-0 over Wolves on September 17.
