Manchester City are said to want Jack Grealish to tell his childhood club Aston Villa that he wants to leave the club this summer.

Manchester City are determined to try to sign Grealish for England record £ 100million
The Daily Star reported that city president Khaldoon Al-Mubarak is increasingly confident in the signing of the 25-year-old and wants Grealish to help move the movement forward by telling the West Midlands side that ‘he wishes to leave.
Grealish has been on hiatus from his involvement with England at the European Championships.
With the future of his Villa in doubt, he is expected to meet with manager Dean Smith and club owners Wes Edens and Nassef Sawiris.
The Aston Villa captain has expressed no public desire to leave his childhood club, although it has been reported that he is reportedly keen to move to the Etihad.
Manchester City owners will continue negotiations with the hope of securing a successful deal this week.
If the Premier League champions complete the signing, it could become the most expensive signing for a British club ever.
Villa has no desire to sell his talisman unless the £ 100million valuation is reached and will offer him an exceptional new contract worth over £ 150,000 per week with the aim of convince to stay.

Grealish signed a new contract at Villa in September after being courted by Manchester United last summer.
Still, it is increasingly recognized that City need to hit the £ 100million figure before they can team up with Grealish in a dream midfielder with their favorite Premier League player Kevin De Bruyne.
City have also been keen on signing Harry Kane this summer, although it might be difficult to sign the Tottenham forward as well.
