Man City table record breaking £100 million offer for Grealish

Manchester City have tabled a £100m offer for Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.

City opened talks with Aston Villa over a deal for the England international this week and have reportedly now made a bid that would make Grealish the most expensive player in Premier League history.

 

According to the Telegraph, the Premier League champions are pressing ahead with the deal as they bid to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season and are prepared to pay a record-breaking fee for the 25-year-old.

Villa are reluctant to lose the midfielder and have offered Grealish a new deal at Villa Park, with the club captain now facing a major decision on whether to remain with his boyhood club or pursue a move to the Etihad.

Grealish will return to the club following a post-Euro 2020 holiday on Monday with his future unclear, City having made the star their leading target of the summer transfer window after being frustrated in attempts to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham.

Villa have conducted their transfer business – including the club record signing of Emiliano Buendia from Norwich – in the hope of keeping Grealish at the club and will hope the academy graduate commits his future to the side, who have shown notable signs of improvement under Dean Smith.

However, a move to City will provide Grealish with Champions League football and a more straightforward route to success, with the Etihad outfit having won three of the past four Premier League titles.

The current British transfer record stands at the £89 million that Manchester United paid Juventus to re-sign Paul Pogba back in 2016.
