Aston Villa playmaker, Jack Grealish, is set to become the most expensive English footballer ever after Man City made £100m offer for him on Friday which would eclipse Paul Pogba‘s 2016 transfer to Manchester United.
City submitted their £100m offer on Friday and it is understood Villa are willing to let Grealish leave for the Premier League champions.
Grealish, who was given an extended break after playing for England at Euro 2020, has been training with his Villa team-mates in London all week and was once again with the group on Wednesday.
He will now have to decide whether he wants to depart his boyhood club in a move that would represent the biggest transfer in English football history.
The previous record is held by Paul Pogba, who re-joined Manchester United for £93.25m from Juventus in 2016.
It is believed the Premier League champions will seal the deal in time for their Community Shield game against Leicester City on Saturday.
City boss, Pep Guardiola, had identified Grealish as a key summer target along with Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane.
