Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish has been given a price tag of at least £100 million, according to Matt Law for The Telegraph.

If the England international does leave for a nine-figure sum then he would become the most expensive British transfer.

Plenty of Interest in the Villa Star

A move away from Villa Park has been rife for some time now. Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have all previously shown interest, according to the report, and the 25-year-old has been compared to Eden Hazard by former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher.

A move away seems likely despite Villa’s strong start to the season. The midfielder has been a key part of the clubs’ success this campaign providing five Premier League goals and a further five assists.

Only Spurs duo Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have more with 16 and 11 respectively.

Most Expensive British Transfer

Currently, Gareth Bale is the most expensive British transfer after his £89 million move from Tottenham to Real Madrid in 2013, while Harry Maguire joined the Red Devils from Leicester City for £80 million in 2018.

But now, with Kane and Son both valued over £100 million and Borussia Dortmund demanding a similar sum for Jadon Sancho, the Premier League outfit have upped their asking price.

Villa had previously valued their star man at £70 million following his first season back in the top flight. However, after failing to receive any bids, Grealish penned a new five year deal with the midlands side. Since, he has grown as a player and become involved in the England senior set-up, thus enhancing his asking price.

No Pressure to Sell

Villa’s owners are under no illusions to sell their star man. Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens are wealthy owners and have shown their financial backing in the last two transfer windows.

But, like last season, Villa know losing their top-flight status could affect any potential multi-million-pound transfer.
