The signing that complicates Messi's arrival at Manchester City

Manchester City has just signed Jack Grealish from Aston Villa, the amount is close to 100 million euros. In addition to the investment in the player, the choice of the number 10 for the player's shirt seems to be a sign.

The 25-year-old comes from Aston Villa and in eight seasons played 213 games, scoring 32 goals and dishing out 43 assists. In addition to the admiration aroused by his performances in England, Jack has also impressed with his country's national team. EURO 2020 was one of his best competitions and he reached the final.

Grealish's arrival complicates Lionel Messi's move to City, who had been interested in the Argentine player. The figure of 'Pep' Guardiola on the bench encouraged those who saw with good eyes the arrival of Messi but everything suggests that the chances for him to wear that shirt are less and less. Time is running out and it has not yet been decided in which team the Argentine will play. 

 


Grealish's comments on his arrival at City

"I'm incredibly happy to arrive at Manchester City," Grealish said after the signing. "City are the best team in the country and they have what is considered to be the best manager in the world. To be part of this club is a dream come true."

"For the last ten seasons they have won titles on a regular basis. Pep came and took them to another level, the soccer this team plays is the most exciting in Europe. Playing for Pep and learning from him will be special and something any top player wants. The facilities are fantastic, I can't wait to get started, meet everyone and play".
