Man City news: Jack Grealish is happy at Man City and does not have any intention of leaving the club despite reports suggesting otherwise.
Reports emerged earlier this week that Grealish has told people close to him of his desire to leave Man City. But 90min reports that the England international is fully committed to Man City and is not planning to seek an exit from the Premier League side.
Grealish joined Man City in the 2021 summer transfer window, with the 27-year-old putting pen to paper on a six-year contract with the Manchester outfit. He left Aston Villa, where, barring for a loan spell at Notts County, he had spent the entirety of his career at.
Grealish made 213 appearances for Aston Villa during his time at the club and scored 32 goals for the Claret and Blue.
Man City news: Grealish’s performance for the defending Premier League champions
Grealish has often come under criticism over his performance since signing for Man City in 2021.
He often failed to live up to the lofty standards expected of him. The fact that he joined Man City in a deal that made him the most expensive player in Premier League also raised expectations.
Grealish came under criticism after he failed to impress during Man City’s recent Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund. The England international had started for Man City in the game but could not influence the match as much as he would have wanted to.
Man City manager Pep Guardiola replaced him as part of a triple substitution in the 58th minute of the match.
Admission by Grealish
Grealish has also admitted he needs to start performing the way he did which earned him a bumper move to Man City. Meanwhile, Guardiola also defended the attacker, insisting it is not just about goals and assists but his overall contribution to the team.
Guardiola started Grealish in Man City’s first game after their Champions League clash with Dortmund. Grealish made it to the starting XI vs Wolves and repaid the faith Guardiola showed in him by scoring their opener just one minute into the game.
Grealish will be hoping to use that as a kick-start and up his game and star for Man City in their upcoming matches.
Meanwhile, since joining Man City in 2021, Grealish has featured in 44 games for the Manchester outfit. He made 38 appearances in his first season at City and scored six goals. He has featured in six matches this season and has bagged a goal.
