ASTON VILLA are prepared to offer Jack Grealish a club record £200,000-a-week in a bid to keep him out of the clutches of champs Manchester City.
Villa are desperate to tie down their star player, 25, to a new contract and are willing to make him one of the highest earners in the Prem.
But Villa are pulling out all the stops and have come up with an offer they hope will ensure they keep the midfielder at the club for years to come.
Grealish still has four years left to run on his current deal which was only signed a year ago.
But City remain hopeful they can prise Grealish away.
They would not only be able to match any financial terms on offer but can also offer the chance to play in the Champions League.
Grealish is currently away on his summer break.
The Three Lions pair were seen sipping drinks and chilling by the pool at the SantAnna beach club on Wednesday.
Former Love Island star Josh Denzel was also poolside as the group hung out.
The mood appeared lighthearted as two female revellers were seen messing around in the pool.

At one stage a laughing woman in a bucket hat – who Grealish had been chatting to earlier in the day – was tugged into the water.
The group were seen gasping at the stunt before chuckling as she emerged from beneath the surface.
Villa ace Grealish was dressed in blue swim shorts and had his sunglasses perched on top of his trademark hair for most of the day.
