Former professional footballer Steve Howey believes that Jack Grealish will be amazing at Manchester City.
Grealish completed his move from Aston Villa to Manchester City for a British record £100m,
signing a six-year contract at the Etihad Stadium.
The midfielder, who Transfermarkt actually value at £58.5m, can operate either as a left-winger or attacking midfielder
and scored seven goals and provided a further 12 last season for Aston Villa in all competitions. Grealish was part of Gareth Southgate’s England team at Euro 2020,
where he got two assists and helped the Three Lions make the final.
After making the switch to Manchester, Grealish told City’s club media: “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 part of this club.”
Former Blues player Steve Howey believes that Grealish will be amazing for the Cityzens, exclusively telling Football FanCast: “I think he will be amazing there. I think it was kind of done in the right way as well the transfer,

“But he’s got a massive opportunity to win lots of trophies and to help Manchester City win the trophies,

Grealish made his Villa debut against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium coming on as an 88th minute substitute, with his departure from Aston Villa was emotional as he said: “Everyone has seen the way Messi was at his final press conference. That is the exact way I felt myself. Before I left at the hotel I spoke to the team, the staff and the players and I teared up a bit myself.” [BBC Sport].
Grealish has already featured for City, as he came on as a second-half substitute in the Community Shield
against Leicester City and started their 1-0 defeat to Tottenham on the opening day of the Premier League season.
