Manchester City have finally managed to sign up Aston Villa forward Jack Grealish on a six-year deal. Pep Guardiola and company had their eyes on Grealish for a long time and have ultimately managed to get him over to the Etihad Stadium.
The Cityzens confirmed on Wednesday that Jack Grealish has signed for their club on a six-year deal. Moreover the English international has also been presented with the number 10 jersey. Earlier Sergio Aguero used to wear that number.
The transfer of Jack Grealish has cost Manchester City upwards of £100 million. This makes Jack Grealish the most expensive transfer in Premier League history. Earlier this record was held by Paul Pogba of Manchester United. Pogba came back to United for £89 million from Juventus in 2016.
I’m very happy to be here: Jack Grealish
”Over the past 10 seasons, City have won major trophies consistently. Pep Guardiola coming here has taken them to the next level and the football this team plays is the most exciting in Europe,” said Grealish.
“To play for Pep and learn from him is going to be special and it’s something any top footballer would want. There’s obviously a lot of reasons why I decided to come here, obviously, the manager has been a massive factor in that,” he added.
“Playing under the best manager in the world was something I couldn’t really turn down. The facilities are amazing, and I honestly can’t wait to get started, meet everyone and get playing,” he said.
