A sensational report from Caught Offside is claiming that the Premier League champions have completed the signing of Jack Grealish with the player set to sign a 5-year contract with the Cityzens after Euro 2020.

It is understood that a deal worth £88 million has been agreed upon by the two clubs i.e, Manchester City and Aston Villa to complete the transfer. Earlier, it was rumored that City were going to break the British transfer record for Grealish this summer but if reports are to be believed, this is an excellent piece of business by both Aston Villa and Manchester City.
Grealish, 25, has evolved into one of the world’s best midfielders in recent times and looks set to take on Europe in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Grealish scored six times last season and assisted on 12 occasions and the 25-year-old missed three months of action due to injury.
There is absolutely no doubt that Pep Guardiola is looking to build an all-English attack for the next season with the Cityzens said to make another attempt at signing Harry Kane after the Euro 2020. The English striker has been tipped with a move away from Tottenham this summer and City are said to be the favorites to sign him.
Kane’s attacking play fits into Guardiola’s plans perfectly but Tottenham chairman, Daniel Levy is not said to be a fan of the idea of letting his prized asset leave in favor of a direct rival. Consequently, the Lillywhites have slapped £150 million on Kane and the price tag is a major stumbling block in this deal.
Recently, the Premier League champions were thought to have made their first official attempt at signing Harry Kane but that was shot down by the Spurs. The opening bid was said to be around £100 million with the probability of including a player or two to complete the deal.
For now, both Grealish and Kane are focusing on Euro 2020, and any decision about their future will only be taken post the conclusion of the marquee competition.
