Isn't this all a knock-on from Man City allegedly wanting Grealish - like a house buying chain? Man City buys Grealish, Villa buys Smith-Rowe, Arsenal need a no 10 replacement and come knocking for Maddison. So we either tell them all to do one, or we just explore the possibility of a Smith-Rowe / Maddison deal with the Ar*e. And that deal would need to be heavily in our favour.
I just want the £80 million, if there not good enough for there first team there not good enough for us. Seems like Brendon has given up on him, I thought he was good against Spurs but Brendon subbed him. Maybe after the lockdown fiasco that cost us the West ham game its caused a rift ?Anyway I will trust the club on this.
