Should Grealish feel bad over leaving Villa for City?

Jack Grealish has described his move to Manchester City as a “dream come true” after sealing his record breaking transfer.

The England international was formally announced as a City player on Thursday night, ending months of speculation regarding his future.

Aston Villa had hoped to keep hold of their talisman and offered a huge new deal to keep him at the club.

However, Grealish has admitted that the lure of playing for ‘the best’ manager in the world was too strong to resist.

The 25-year-old has also been confirmed as the club’s new No 10, replacing Sergio Aguero who left for Barcelona this summer.

“I am incredibly happy to have joined Manchester City,” Grealish said. “City are the best team in the country with a manager considered to be the best in the world – it’s a dream come true to be part of this club.

“Over the past 10 seasons, they have won major trophies consistently. Pep coming here has taken them to the next level and the football this team plays is the most exciting in Europe.

“To play for Pep and learn from him is going to be special and it’s something any top footballer would want.









“The facilities are amazing, and I honestly can’t wait to get started, meet everyone and get playing.”

Confirmation of Grealish’s announcement comes amidst stunning developments regarding Lionel Messi’s Barcelona future.

The Argentinian will leave the Nou Camp on a free transfer with City one of the early front-runners to sign him.

Harry Kane is another name consistently linked, but for now, City fans have been told just how exciting their new No 10 will be.

“His natural talent together with his commitment to improve as a player, has seen him become one of the most exciting attacking players in world football today.
