English Football Pundit, Ian Wright have Criticized the signing of EPL Duo of Thomas Partey and Jack Grealish for a Combined £145m.

Thomas Partey was signed from Atletico Madrid in the Summer of 2020 after Arsenal activated his £45m Release Clause. 

A Year later Manchester City took a step Further in Landing Highly Rated English Attacker, Jack Grealish to the Etihad after triggering the player's £100m Release Clause on a transfer that has raised a lot of Controversy for the past Couple of Months.

Ian Wright, an Arsenal Legend has dropped his Candid Opinion on the duo of Partey and Grealish, Stating it clear that the players weren't really worth the Transfer fee placed on them but someone clubs are able to afford signing the players with an amount that was meant to scare them off.

“These extraordinary prices and releases clauses that they put in,” said Wright. 

“They aren’t meant to be met. They aren’t meant to be paid.

“It is meant to put people off. But now we are in a situation where people can afford to buy them.

“If I am Jack Grealish, then I am saying ‘that’s the release clause’. He was happy at Villa, then somebody has paid the release clause.

“The same with Thomas Partey at Arsenal. Is he £50 million? I don’t think he’s that much. It’s the release clause.”
