Manchester City: Jack Grealish does not expect to be at Etihad next season

Manchester City: Jack Grealish does not expect to be at Etihad next season -Manchester City News

Manchester City‘s record signing Jack Grealish does not expect to be at the club next season, according to a report from Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Record signing

In the summer of 2021, it was announced that City had signed the Aston Villa captain for £100m, the biggest transfer dee in British football history.

However, since arriving at the Etihad Stadium, the England international has faced criticism for a number of his performances, which were seen to be below-par for the club’s record signing.

In his first season with the Sky Blues, the winger made 26 top-flight appearances for Pep Guardiola, contributing just three goals and three assists for the Premier League champions.

The Latest: Grealish could be going

According to Football Insider, Grealish has told friends that he does not expect to be at Man City next season.

The 27-year-old apparently believes that Guardiola’s tactical setup is failing to extract the best of his individual qualities, and he fears that he made a big mistake joining a team with such strict passing routines.

It is said that the former Villa playmaker has complained that he does not get enough of the ball at City.

The Verdict: Underrated at Man City

When looking at Grealish’s underlying statistics, it could be argued that his tenure with the Premier League champions has been severely underrated.

As per FBRef, compared with positional peers across Europe’s top five leagues over the past year, the England international ranks in the top 1% for progressive carries, the top 2% for touches in the attacking penalty area and the top 3% for pass completion.

Is Jack Grealish worth £100million?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Hailed by Guardiola for his ‘incredible’ debut at City, Grealish has joined a team of superstars – a stark contrast to life at Villa Park – so things were always going to be different at the Etihad.

However, he is definitely contributing positively to the Sky Blues, so the harsh criticism that he often receives can be unfair.
