Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish has once again shown his admiration for Kevin De Bruyne by sharing a selfie of himself with a framed shirt worn by the Manchester City star.
The England international started against Belgium back in November and it appears that is where he got hold of De Bruyne’s jersey. The midfielder has previously expressed how much he enjoys watching the Belgian play, so it is not surprising that he mounted the shirt on his wall.
With City manager Pep Guardiola having also previously stated his admiration for Grealish, there has been constant speculation that the Manchester club may make a bid for the 25-year-old, and fans on Twitter would like to see the playmaker at the Ethiad:

The biggest stumbling block to any move happening would be Grealish’s reported price tag, which is believed to be £100m. On top of that, they are expected to face competition from other clubs, including rivals Manchester United.
