More meat on the grill to go after the great goal: the Champions League. After falling in the final against Chelsea, Manchester City has already been planning the big blow in the transfer market to try to go for the ‘Orejona’ again. To the already known interest of a few weeks ago by Harry Kane, Josep Guardiola's team is going to negotiate a record amount to get Jack Grealish, from Aston Villa.

According to the information provided by the British media 'Daily Mail' and 'The Sun', City is preparing nothing less than the stratospheric sum of 116 million euros for the playmaker, who would become the most expensive British footballer in history. And this ‘bombshell’ would not take long to become effective. The intention of Manchester City is to undertake the signing when the Eurocup ends, or at least, when England finishes their participation in the tournament. Play in the round of 16 against Germany.

The current market record in the Premier League is held by Manchester United, when they signed Paul Pogba in 2016 for almost 104 million euros from Juventus, a figure that will be surpassed in the coming days by the 'Citizens'. At 25, Grealish has closed a fantastic season with the 'Villains' and has finally managed to clinch a spot in Southgate's England line-up, waiting to advance further into the round of 16 of the tournament.

Of course, the talks between Manchester City and Aston Villa for the signing of Grealish will not be an impediment for them to continue trying Harry Kane, the main objective for the forward of the ‘Citizens’. The departure of ‘Kun’ Agüero forces the City to look for a level attacker, and English seems to be the one. Even from England they suggest that the Etihad Stadium club could wait another year for the arrival of the "Spurs" forward.
