Manchester City on Thursday announced the signing of Jack Grealish on a six-year deal from Aston Villa for a fee reported to be £100 million ($139 million).
City confirmed Grealish will wear the number 10 shirt, which was recently vacated by the departure to Barcelona of long-serving striker Sergio Aguero.
“I am incredibly happy to have joined Manchester City. City is the best team in the country with a manager considered to be the best in the world – it’s a dream come true to be part of this club,” Grealish, 25, said on www.mancity.com.
