About 40 million for Emi Buendía. 35 million for Leon Bailey. And offers of thirty in case anyone else wants to get on the Aston Villa train, which is very clear for next season: they want to put together a good team after the imminent departure of Jack Grealish. With the arrivals of Buendía, Bailey and with a month to go until the market ends, the villains want to establish themselves with force in the Premier League.
The departure of Jack Grealish towards Manchester City, according to what they point out in England, is a matter of hours. His transfer would make him the most expensive footballer in the English competition, reaching up to 100 million, an amount that Aston Villa are willing to spend throughout the summer. To the 40 million that they invested in Buendía – the best footballer in the second division last season – and the 35 million for the transfer of Bailey, from Bayer Leverkusen, they want to add some more movement.
Aston Villa has made two offers for James Ward-Prowse, from Southampton, for almost 30 million. For now, both rejected. But they will return for one of the best set-piece specialists in the Premier League, while Norwich’s Todd Cantwell is another target. Besides, also they will try to convince Axel Tuanzebe so that, on loan, the Manchester United defender reinforces the defensive back. All this to join the Watkins, Emi Martinez, Mings, McGinn and company. A project that, yes, most likely will lose its best piece: Jack Grealish.
