Jack Grealish's numbers at Manchester City doesn't justify his transfer fees

Manchester City are yet to see the best of Jack Grealish despite paying £100m for him and the excuse of adaptation is running out for the forward.

Manchester City broke the English transfer record to sign English attacker Jack Grealish for £100m from boyhood club Aston Villa in the summer and as of this moment has not proved to be a wise investment by Pep Guardiola.

Guardiola's priority at the end of last season was a striker but it was surprising he spent that much on an attacker instead despite having a plethora of attacking talents in Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva, Ilkay Gundogan and others. Many believed if Guardiola knew Messi would leave Barcelona, he would not have signed Grealish.

The English forward has produced just three goals and two assists in 14 appearances since joining Manchester City across four competitions including the Premier League and UEFA Champions League.

Manchester City also had a failed pursuit for Harry Kane and submitted a bid in excess of £150m but was unsuccessful and Guardiola's squad lacking of a striker is obvious and the signing of Grealish over a proper number hasn't been justified.
