Jack Grealish 'to complete Man City transfer next week' in record-breaking move


Jack Grealish will reportedly join Manchester City next week in a record-breaking move. The Aston Villa star will become the most expensive Premier League player of all time with the Blues prepared to pay £100million for the England international. The fee will eclipse the £89m Manchester United paid for Paul Pogba in 2016. 

Man City chiefs and their counterparts at Villa apparently began discussions about the move on Tuesday of this week as the Premier League champions look to bring the midfielder to Etihad Stadium.

The Birmingham club had been reluctant to let their talisman move on, but with a British transfer record tabled, Villa will begrudgingly allow the 25-year-old to depart according to the Daily Mail

Grealish will earn a significantly more than his current £160,000-per-week wages when the deal to take him north has been completed.

The maverick is yet to report to pre-season training after being given an extended break following England’s run to the final of Euro 2020 and it is currently unclear whether he will re-join his team-mates at Villa or head straight to City.

Grealish has been holidaying in Mykonos with a number of his international team-mates after an impressive summer with England and speculation has been rife during his time away.

On Thursday, former England defender Rio Ferdinand lauded Grealish with praise for his rise to the top of the game. 

“There aren’t many breathtaking footballers around anymore who produce breathtaking moments,” Ferdinand told the FIVE Youtube channel.

“He’s just a phenomenal player. He gives you the ability to smile at the TV.

“He’s been loyal. The fact he stayed at Villa last season is enough for them to clap him out of the stadium and say thank you.
