Futballnews reported earlier today that Kane did not show up in training today, August 2 which is an agreed date for him to resume after representing England in the just concluded Euro 2020. On the other hand, Jack Grealish decided to show up amidst interest from Manchester City, the same club that is interested in Kane.
Late in July, it was reported that the reigning Premier League champions have gone as far as offering Aston Villa a whopping £100 million for the services of Jack Grealish.
Grealish is a very important player at Aston Villa, but it is believed that it might be difficult for the Premier League club to reject a £100 million bid for their academy product.
With the resumption of Grealish to training today, the England international has proven that he is not so desperate to leave Aston Villa this summer despite the strong interest Manchester City have in him.

The England international will have a meeting with Aston Villa’s board to discuss whether he is interested in the deal or intends to stay a bit longer at Villa.
Though Jack Grealish respected the contract that exists between him and Villa by resuming training two weeks after he represented England in Euro 2020 which ended on July 11, 2021, the Englishman is reportedly interested in moving to a bigger club.
Hence, this could be his last pre-season training at Aston Villa except anything goes wrong in the negotiation between him, his club, and Manchester City. His contract with Villa will expire on June 30, 2025.
Meanwhile, the new manager of Bayern Munich, Julian Nagelsmann said he is sure that his club’s midfielder, Leon Goretzka, would not leave the German Bundesliga side despite interests from clubs across Europe.
Leon Goretzka has a season left on his contract with Bayern Munich and coach Nagelsmann wants the German international to extend his stay at the German club.
“I’ve told him I’d be happy if he extended and I’m also confident. There are several topics involved when it comes to discussing a contract extension”, the coach said.
“I’ll continue to focus on the sports side of things and show him he can be one of the most dangerous midfielders in Europe. He has potential to get even better.”
Amidst some of the clubs that have shown interest in him, Manchester United reportedly looks like the club that want him the most. However, reports claimed that the representatives of Goretzka are using Manchester United as bait to get a better contract extension from Bayern.
