Bukayo Saka and Jack Grealish are two individuals powering their respective teams to the English Premier League crown this season.
Saka who is currently 21 years old has been integral in Arsenal’s title push and he is a frontrunner for the Professional Footballers Association Player of the Year award.
On the other hand, Jack Grealish, 27, has fully matured at Manchester City, after his £100 million move from Aston Villa assisting his team to a winning run that has seen them become the top choice for the league title.
However, off the pitch, they are very distinct characters and personalities. Clotheshorse Grealish is an ambassador for Italian fashion brand Gucci and, with his glam partner Sasha Attwood, has crossed over to the celebrity pages.
Bukayo Saka appears like a more reserved figure, propelled by religion and lives at home with his father and mother.
In spite of that, both individuals are massive friends when they meet up on international duty for the Three Lions of England.
Ill-matched as they may be, Jack Grealish has acknowledged having a soft spot for Bukayo Saka.
Speaking on talkSPORT, the Englishman spoke about his admiration for Saka when they asked who would make an ideal son-in-law.
Talking about Saka, Grealish – without any reluctance stated: “You know what, mate? He’s the best, the best kid, honestly.
“I went up to his dad the other day and I said: ‘I love your son’ He’s a legend, honestly, he must be the nicest kid ever. He’s got a little bit of banter as well, he’s funny.”
Aside Jack Grealish, Saka is widely loved by his English teammates
Humorously, James Maddison also picked Saka to be his ideal in-law and further said if he had a sister or a daughter, and they say to him: “I’m going on a date with Jack Grealish’, I’d be like ‘nah, you’re not.”
Jack Grealish also disclosed more about his relationship with the Arsenal attacker in an interview with The Times before England played against Ukraine in March.
He also discussed a scuffle they had in an encounter at the Emirates Stadium earlier this campaign.
Grealish stated: “I’m playing for City on the wing, he’s playing for Arsenal on the wing and we’re both going for the Premier League.
“But that is another thing that the manager here at England has done so well. We feel like a group of team-mates that are together. Back at your club, you’re rivals but everyone just clicks here.
“He’s a great lad, Bukayo. In the game the other week, I went past someone and then me and him went shoulder to shoulder.
“I thought, the ref has got to give it as a foul’, because I can’t have Bukayo saying that he bodied me. I pulled him up on that this morning and he said it was never a foul.”

When the former Aston Villa attacker penned a deal with City in 2021 for a British record transfer fee, the transfer made him one of the Premier League’s biggest-earners.

He joked saying: “I like every type of music. I’m actually trying to learn to DJ at the moment. Yeah, ‘DJ Grealo”
“I’m awful but everything takes time. I’m trying to learn Spanish as well. I want to learn some stuff outside of football, have a hobby and stuff.”
