Jack Grealish: Manchester City's £100m transfer bid for England midfielder expected to be accepted by Aston Villa

Manchester City made £100m offer for Jack Grealish on Friday; Aston Villa offered their captain a new contract; Grealish’s move would eclipse Paul Pogba’s 2016 transfer to Manchester United and become biggest in English football history

Manchester City’s £100m bid for Jack Grealish is expected to be accepted by Aston Villa.

While Villa are yet to formally respond to City’s offer – which was made on Friday – it is understood they are now willing to allow their captain to leave.

It means Grealish now has to decide whether he wants to move to the Etihad Stadium in what would be the biggest transfer in English football history.

The previous record is held by Paul Pogba, who re-joined Manchester United for £89m from Juventus in 2016.

Although they are now ready to accept City’s bid, Villa did offer Grealish a new and improved contract earlier this summer, despite him only signing a five-year deal last September.
