And though City did not confirm the actual fee, Grealish, as per the BBC, is believed to have set the Sky Blues back a staggering £100m.
This makes Grealish, Man City’s most expensive player, the Premier League’s most expensive player and the most expensive English player of all time.
De Bruyne’s message to Grealish
Whilst the fee is slightly excessive, it is easy to see why Man City wanted to snap Grealish up.
He is one of the most exciting talents in England right now and has been Villa’s talisman for several years now.
Even last season, when he had some injury issues, Grealish still scored six and assisted 12 in 26 outings.
And with a better crop of players around him, you would assume that tally will only become even more impressive in 2021/22.
One of these new teammates, Kevin De Bruyne, has already sent out a message to Grealish via his official Twitter account, which can be seen below:
