Manchester City to complete British record £100 million Jack Grealish signing today

Jack Grealish is on the verge of completing his eagerly anticipated £100million move

Jack Grealish is on the verge of completing his British record £100million transfer from Aston Villa to Manchester City and his signing could be confirmed later today.

The England international arrived in Manchester this morning and is set to put the finishing touches to a move that would see him become the most expensive signing in British football history, eclipsing the £89m Manchester United paid Juventus to buy Paul Pogba four years ago.

City romped to the Premier League title last season, but Pep Guardiola is intent on building from a position of strength and had earmarked Grealish as his No.1 target to provide competition for the likes of Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling.

Villa had been determined to retain the services of their talismanic captain, but were rendered powerless to prevent his departure after City activated the release clause in the contract Grealish signed nearly 12 months ago.
