‘Agent Grealish’: Man City star sends two-word quip to Jude Bellingham after Man Utd and Liverpool rumours
and live on Freeview channel 276
Manchester City fans have applauded the efforts of Jack Grealish to coax Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham to the Etihad Stadium. The cheeky City midfielder is known for his banter and online presence thanks to a number of hilarious moments over the years.
The former Aston Villa man was back at it again on Thursday when scrolling through the comments of an Instagram post shared by defender Manuel Akanji. The centre-back shared a series of relaxed shots in a post after Tuesday night's thrashing of RB Leipzig with the caption, "was on my grind and now I got what I deserve".
Akanji signed for City from Borussia Dortmund last year and former teammate Bellingham swung by the comments section to rib the defender. The English international tagged fellow Dortmund star Gio Reyna and wrote "he's changed", followed by a shocked emoji. Grealish couldn't resist the chance to send a message to his England teammate and penned a response that said: "Come to city xx"
The comment picked up over 12,000 likes in under 18 hours as City fans flocked to Akanji's Instagram post to praise "Agent Grealish at work".
Bellingham's contract with Borussia Dortmund would keep him with the German giants until 2025 but with huge interest from Premier League sides, the youngster's future is the subject of regular transfer rumours. Dortmund are reported to want a £110 million fee for the 19-year-old, which would make him the most expensive British player in the history of the game.
Should a deal with that fee be announced, Bellingham would break the £100 million record held by none other than cheeky Citizen Grealish himself after moving from Villa in 2021.
Liverpool have long been touted as being in pole position to land the midfielder's signature, but a potential failure to secure Champions League football next season could dent ambitions. As well as Manchester City, Manchester United and Real Madrid have shown interest in Bellingham.
