Official: Grealish to City, the most expensive signing in the Premiere

Jack Grealish is already a new Manchester City footballer. A total of 118 million is to blame for his transfer from Aston Villa, where he was a youth squad and club captain. Grealish, who will wear number 10, has signed a long-term contract and at the age of 25 makes the step required by his sports career. In addition, it has become the most expensive transfer in British football.

The English midfielder will be under the command of Pep Guardiola and will be available this weekend, when the ‘citizens’ face Leicester City in the Community Shield final at Wembley. The Manchester City midfield adds Grealish to the list of potential starters.

The former Aston Villa will fight for the position against De Bruyne, Gündogan or Bernardo Silva – candidates to leave the team in the rest of the transfer market –, but it can also operate on the most dangerous line, where it will find Foden, Mahrez or Sterling. Another alternative for Pep Guardiola, who has one of his goals for this summer.

The second remains Harry Kane, a Tottenham striker who has not yet joined his team’s training sessions. Kane has shown his intention to leave the Spurs to secure collective titles, which Manchester City is accustomed to, but his remaining three years of contract call on Daniel Levy to be tough in negotiations. Therefore, City will have to return above 100 million if they want to have a new striker this season.
