Man City sign Grealish for £100m
Manchester City have signed England midfielder Jack Grealish from Aston Villa for a British record of £100m.
The 25-year-old joins the Premier League champions on a six-year contract and will wear the number 10 shirt recently vacated by Sergio Aguero.
The fee surpasses the £89m Manchester United paid to re-sign midfielder Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016.
“City are the best team in the country with a manager considered to be the best in the world, It’s a dream come true to be part of this club.” said Grealish.
The England international also took to his social media pages to say his farewell to his boyhood club, Aston Villa. He tipped the Villians for greatness, claiming they were in good hands with the coaching staff and new signings.
The move to Manchester City makes Grealish the ninth most expensive footballer in history. He could make his debut for Pep Guardiola’s side when the Premier League champions play against Leicester in the Community Shield at Wembley on Saturday
