Manchester City have announced that they signed Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish to a six-year deal. The 25-year old has a good reputation, scoring 32 goals and making 43 assists over 213 appearances in just eight seasons.
Why Grealish Could Be The Perfect Addition
Grealish stands out as a professional soccer player, making him a very good addition to Manchester City’s squad.
He has had a strong performance both individually and as a team with the England national team. Grealish helped lead the team to the Euro 2020 final’s portion of the competition.
In addition, it is pretty safe to say that Manchester City has secured one of the league’s finest, talented players. His style of play will surely give the team a whole new pop.
Grealish has an amazing ability to carry the ball perfectly without any trouble and has proven the ability to be able to keep possession of the ball even in the most toughest situations.
Brief Background On Grealish
Grealish originally began at Aston Villa’s academy when he was only six-years old. At 16, this young man was an unused substitute during a home game versus Chelsea back in March 2012.
While Grealish may not have been used during that game, it still means a lot to be named as a substitute at just 16 years of age.
Additionally, he was loaned to Notts County in 2013. During the time he was loaned, he played in 39 games and scored five goals. He officially returned to Aston Villa near the conclusion of the 2013-14 season.
While playing for Aston Villa, it appears that Grealish improved even more and became more of a “secure” player for the organization to have.
He appeared in 17 games in the Premier League. On top of that, Grealish even played in an entire 90 minutes in the FA Cup Finals back in 2015. He was only 19 at the time, which allowed for him to receive the club’s Young Player of the Year award.
Going into more recent times with this young soccer star, Grealish made the 2020-21 season one of his most memorable ones, winning the Player of the Season award. In addition, he made five appearances for the England national team.
