It's time to celebrate, Manchester City fans. That's because Jack Grealish is on his way to the Etihad Stadium. After weeks of rumors and constant speculation, Fabrizio Romano has reported that the move is done.
In the end, City is paying right around $139 million for the star midfielder. After winning the English Premier League title three out of the last four years, City's lineup is now getting even stronger with Grealish in the fold.
Grealish is coming off a fantastic performance at the Euros. He's also been brilliant for Aston Villa. With that said, and as much as he loves the club, Grealish wants to play at the highest level and compete for titles.
Jack Grealish has signed his contract until June 2026. He’s gonna be announced as new Manchester City player for £100m from Aston Villa. Paperworks signed yesterday evening between the two clubs. 🔵 #MCFC— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) August 5, 2021
Pep Guardiola has already spoken directly with Jack. Here-we-go confirmed.
That wouldn't be the case if he were to stay long term with Aston Villa. Joining Man City, though, changes everything. This team indeed won the EPL last year and made it to the Champions League Final.
After losing to Chelsea, Pep Guardiola is obviously motivated to not only get back to the Final next season, but this time win the cup. With Grealish now getting ready to ball out for him, the odds of that happening sure have improved.
Can you picture Grealish flying down the pitch alongside Kevin De Bruyne? The two will be able to create so much magic together whenever they're on the field together.
This has got to be rough news for Manchester United, Liverpool and the rest of the clubs in contention. The party is alive and well outside the Etihad Stadium. Grealish is on his way, folks.
