Jack Grealish has become the most expensive Premier League footballer after completing his move from Aston Villa to Manchester City for £100m.
The England midfielder’s move comes after City submitted their offer on Friday and activated a £100m release clause in his Villa contract.
The Grealish deal breaks the previous transfer fee record held by French midfielder Paul Pogba who rejoined Manchester United for £93.25m from Juventus in 2016.
Grealish, 25, shot to prominence in the past year and capped off an impressive season with some key contributions for the England national team, helping them get to the Euro 2020 final at Wembley.
