Manchester City set to complete £100m move for Aston Villa star Grealish

Grealish will have his physical on Thursday morning in Manchester in order to clinch the record deal.

Why Guardiola wants Grealish?

Grealish's signing would signify the acquisition of one of English football's most exciting talents, and Pep Guardiola has been a great fan since hailing him as a "excellent player" in 2020.

City made the 25-year-old one of his primary objectives this summer, alongside Tottenham striker Harry Kane, believing he would offer a new dimension to his squad.

Grealish showed he can be a game-changer when he came off the bench for England at Euro 2020, adding flair and inspiration, and City believe he can add even more quality to a talented squad and lead them to their first Champions League victory after missing out last season when they were beaten in the final by Chelsea.
