PREMIER - Jack Grealish lands in Manchester to join Guardiola's team
Manchester City are set to make current Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish the most expensive signing in Premier League history (waiting Harry Kane).
The Sky Blues are confident of capturing the 25-year-old from his boyhood club for a reported fee of £100 million, surpassing the £89 million spent by Manchester United on Paul Pogba in 2016.
It has further been mentioned by Fabrizio Romano, that Villa are expected to accept the bid, and though Grealish has trained with his current side since returning from holiday on Monday. City believe that the prospect of playing Champions League football and competing for major trophies has convinced the England international to move to Manchester, where he is set to earn around of £200,000-per-week.
It has been reported by Daily Mail, that Grealish has landed in Manchester ahead of his medical on Thursday morning, following which City will announce his arrival ahead of the first competitive fixture of the new campaign. It will also be interesting to understand how Grealish and Sterling can coexist in the team, as they are both left winger.
Grealish made a big impact in the last two seasons played with the "Villains" and is now preparing for a big change, at a very high cost.
