Manchester City are preparing to make England midfielder Jack Grealish the most expensive Premier League acquisition ever

MANCHESTER CITY are set to make England midfielder Jack Grealish the most expensive Premier League signing ever.

The £89 million paid by Manchester United to Paul Pogba five years ago was the highest fee paid by an English top-flight club.

If Spurs receive anywhere near the £160 million they want for City-linked Harry Kane, the record may not last long.

Villa do not want to trade talisman Grealish and will make a last-ditch attempt to persuade him to stay by offering him a lucrative new contract.

If they are forced to sell, they will demand roughly £100 million.

There’s even talk that the contract he signed at Villa Park a year ago includes a release clause for roughly that amount.

The Premier League winners’ pursuit of the 25-year-old England international is expected to increase this week, with a view to signing the player before the Community Shield on Saturday 7th August, according to reports.

While personal issues between Manchester City and Jack Grealish are unlikely to become a stumbling barrier in any agreement, the entire transfer sum has some concerned.

According to reports, they will make an initial proposal of £75 million to test the waters in the coming days.

The £145 million transfer of Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool to Barcelona in January 2018 set a new record for a transfer involving a British club.
