Jack Grealish officially joins Manchester City in historic £100MILLION move from Aston Villa

Jack Grealish became the most expensive British footballer ever by completing a historic £100million move to Manchester City.

The 25-year-old underwent medical at the City Football Academy and signed a six-year contract worth more than £200,000 a week.

Grealish revealed the driving force behind leaving his boyhood club, Aston Villa, was winning major trophies after City triggered the release clause in his contract last week.

I am over the moon. To come and play for a club like Manchester City is obviously massive for me personally,’ Grealish said.

‘It was obviously a difficult few months because I have been an Aston Villa fan for my whole life, but when I spoke to the manager here and you see what type of players they have got here, in the end it was something I couldn’t say no to. I am absolutely delighted to be here.

‘Trophies are the main reason why I joined. There are obviously a lot of reasons why I decided to come here. The manager has been a massive factor; playing under the best manager in the world was something I couldn’t really turn down.

‘Obviously the players that we have got here, I think everyone knows how much I admire Kevin [De Bruyne]. It is going to become a dream come true to play alongside him. But competing for major trophies is something that I wanted to do. It was something I couldn’t turn down.’
