Aston Villa will allow Jack Grealish to leave with Man City ready to spend £100m

Manchester City are looking to break the Premier League and British transfer record for Jack Grealish, and that we’ve known for a long while, but now it appears it will occur at the end of Euro 2020.

As per the dailymail and other sources, they are quite confident this deal will go through quicker than initially expected and believe talks between Manchester City and Aston Villa have progressed well and “rapidly”.

This is why they are certain Man City will spend the £100m asking price for the midfielder, who is wanted by both Manchester clubs, but it has always been Pep Guardiola who’s wanted him more over the past couple of transfer windows.

Manchester City will complete a record-breaking, £100million deal for Jack Grealish after the England star has finished representing his country at Euro 2020.

Sportsmail exclusively revealed last month that City were willing to smash the British transfer record for the 25-year-old Aston Villa star.

Talks between the two clubs have progressed rapidly and City, who still want to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham this summer, have now agreed a huge deal.

Aston Villa happy to part ways with Jack Grealish

Yes, there is no club that would be happy and willing to just break up with their best player/s. However, when you bade farewell to your star man for £100m, which breaks the English transfer record at the same time, and you’ve already succeeded his talents with a 30-goal contributing machine, it is quite easy to look the other way and complete a transaction.

The Villians gave a strong impression that they have been busy in the planning of replacing Jack Grealish long before the news broke on Friday that the two are edging closer to finalising the inevitable transition for the Englishman from Birmingham to Manchester.

Having signed Emi Buendía from Norwich City for £35 million, one knew then and there, this was the signal that Villa will be ready to cash in on one of England’s brightest talents. Attempting to sign Emile Smith Rowe from Arsenal was another sign – but that bid was rejected by the Gunners.

Sportsmail first revealed City’s interest in Grealish in March, with the midfielder keen to move to the Etihad Stadium due to the prospect of working under Pep Guardiola.

If Aston Villa had made Champions League ball, or even the Europa League, they would have been able to hold on to him a little longer perhaps. Last season’s promise, agonisingly, was far from satisfying despite a 7-2 victory over Liverpool and a final day victory over Chelsea.

Placing 11th and outside of the top 10 shows there is still a lot of work to be done at Villa Park and Grealish gave what he can to the club he has been at since a wee lad. Not taking the chance to play under Pep will be seen as a mishit.
