Aston Villa are not prepared to sell Jack Grealish for anything less than £100m next year, according to a report.
The England international has been linked with a move to a Champions League club after his starring role for Villa last term, but Grealish elected to commit his future to Dean Smith's side until 2025 despite reported interest from Manchester United in the summer.
The 25-year-old has once again played a key part in Villa's strong start to the 2020-21 campaign, with Manchester City now also believed to be in the running for his signature after he was reportedly given a seal of approval by Kevin De Bruyne.
However, according to The Telegraph, it would now take a nine-figure sum to prise Grealish away from Villa Park even though the West Midlands outfit would have accepted £70m in the summer.
The report claims that despite interest from the two Manchester clubs, Villa are confident that Grealish's £100m price tag will deter potential suitors and the winger will stay put past the summer of 2021.
Should any team fork out the required £100m to secure Grealish's services, the Villa captain would become the most expensive British player in history, a record which is currently held by Gareth Bale.
Grealish already boasts six goals and six assists in all competitions for Aston Villa in the 2020-21 season.
