Mercato: Manchester City breaks records to afford Grealish! (official) – Football

By formalizing this Thursday the signing of attacking midfielder Jack Grealish for 117 million euros from Aston Villa, Manchester City struck a huge blow … and broke several records.

Jack Grealish will change dimension!

On this Thursday evening when the announcement of the non-extension of Lionel Messi is at the center of all discussions, Manchester City has been stolen the spotlight.

And yet, the Skyblues have just formalized a new coronation! As expected for several days, the reigning English champion has indeed announced the signing of attacking midfielder Jack Grealish (25) until June 2027.

Grealish in history

To snatch one of the most successful and spectacular players in the English Aston Villa championship, the Citizens broke their piggy bank and spent 117 million euros. I am incredibly happy to join Manchester City. City are the best team in the country with a manager considered to be the best in the world. It’s a dream come true to be part of this club, appreciated the recruit who will have to confirm his good dispositions in a much more competitive context. In any case, the Mancuniens believe in him: with the amount spent for this transfer, they broke 3 records for the price of one!

The unfortunate Euro finalist has indeed become the most expensive player in the history of the Premier League, ahead of Paul Pogba, bought 105 million euros in 2016 by Manchester United from Juventus Turin. He also acquired the title of the most expensive English player in history ahead of Harry Maguire (€ 87 million) and a record transfer in this transfer window. At least for the moment because it is not excluded that Chelsea make a folly for Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan), just like… Manchester City for Harry Kane (Tottenham).

The rest with Kane… or Messi?

Indeed, the team led by Pep Guardiola would have sufficient funds to complete two XXL transfers this summer and they would be ready to drop € 187 million to give in to Tottenham! While many clubs are forced to tighten their belts, the Catalan technician may not be done rubbing his hands. Unless the Spaniard prefers to turn to Messi, he will no longer have any scruples to steal from Bara since the Blaugrana have just announced his departure. In other words, the transfer window is far from over on the Etihad Stadium side!
