Jack Grealish will undergo a Manchester City medical on Thursday ahead of his proposed £100m transfer from Aston Villa.

City submitted their offer on Friday and it activated a £100m release clause in Grealish’s Villa contract.

The move would represent the biggest transfer in English football history, breaking the previous record held by Paul Pogba who rejoined Manchester United for £93.25m from Juventus in 2016.

Former Aston Villa defender Stephen Warnock says he can understand why Grealish would want to join Manchester City.

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.

Former Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry says he can empathise with Grealish as he decides where his future lies

It has been very difficult for 25-year-old Grealish to decide if he wants to leave the club he has supported all his life and been a part of for 19 years. He was absolutely torn about the decision.

Villa were willing to offer him more in wages than he will earn at City, but he wants to win titles.

Grealish’s decision has been accepted by the management and players at Villa, who wish him well for the future and hold no bitterness over his departure. They hope the fans share that same understanding and that Grealish’s legacy at the club will remain intact.
