Manchester City Homes In on £100M Jack Grealish Deal

Manchester City are closing in on the £100m signing of Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish.



The deal could be done in time for the England midfielder to play in the Community Shield against Leicester City on Saturday, according to the BBC.

The move for the 25-year-old would make it a British record. It's worth around $131m USD.


But is the sum too high?


On the latest episode of the Swift Kicks Podcast - Ben said “he isn’t worth it.”


Man City made their move for Grealish at the end of last week, despite Grealish having signed a new five-year deal with Villa in September.


If City do land Grealish for £100m it will make him the ninth most expensive player in history.
