As the £100 million Aston Villa deal approaches, Jack Grealish’s medical appointment with Man City has been confirmed.
This week, Jack Grealish will finalize his world-record-breaking transfer.
According to rumors, Jack Grealish will have his Manchester City physical on Thursday ahead of a record-breaking £100 million signing from Aston Villa. This week, the 25-year-old will become the most expensive player in English football history.
Grealish will have a physical on Thursday in Manchester, according to Sky Sports.
On Friday, Man City made a £100 million proposal for his services, which Aston Villa accepted after frantic meetings with their captain.
Grealish’s arrival at the Etihad Stadium sets a new British transfer record, surpassing Manchester United’s £89 million payment to Juventus for Paul Pogba in 2016.
Pep Guardiola’s first summer signing will be the England international as he seeks to bolster his all-star Premier League-winning squad.
Grealish, who joined Villa at the age of eight, will depart the club this summer.
He has 32 goals and 37 assists in 207 first-team games for the Villains in the Premier League, Championship, FA Cup, and League Cup.
Last summer, he secured a new five-year contract at Villa Park after assisting Dean Smith in keeping the team in the English Premier League.
Villa finished 11th last season as a result of his consistent consistency, earning him a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for Euro 2020.
Grealish joins Guardiola’s side, which is one of Europe’s most competitive.
In Catalan coach Ernesto Valverde’s fluid 4-3-3 formation, he can play on the wing or as a number eight alongside Kevin De Bruyne or Ilkay Gundogan.
The fact that the foul-drawing specialist contributes to the current City team speaks eloquently about his abilities.
Learning from one of football’s most brilliant brains should help him blossom and push his game to new heights for both club and country.
Meanwhile, Villa have done a good job of replacing Grealish this summer with a number of promising forward acquisitions of their own.
Emiliano Buendia, the playmaker for Norwich City, has joined Smith’s team for £33 million.
On Wednesday, Villa finalized the £25 million transfer of Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey.
There could be more, too, with Southampton’s James Ward-Prowse firmly in the Midlands club’s sights ahead of the end-of-month transfer deadline.
Danny Ings’ surprise arrival from Southampton was also confirmed on Wednesday, with the striker joining for about £30 million.
