Manchester City Complete Record €117m Signing of Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has completed a £100million (€117m) move from Aston Villa to Manchester City. The England midfielder has put pen to paper on a six-year deal at the Etihad. Still just 25, Grealish had amassed 213 Villa appearances, chipping in with 32 goals and 43 assists. He's comfortably become the most expensive purchase in big-spending City's history, and the deal is the priciest completed by a Premier League club, trumping the €105m Manchester United forked out for Paul Pogba in 2016. Grealish will wear the no.10 at City. "I am incredibly happy to have joined Manchester City,” the former Republic of Ireland U21 player of the year said. “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 be part of ...

Man Utd Sign new goalkeeper to rival De Gea, Henderson

  Tom Heaton has returned to Manchester United as a free agent, the club have confirmed. Heaton spent 13 years in United’s youth system and was loaned to several clubs, before leaving to play for Cardiff, Bristol City, Burnley and Aston Villa.

He said: “For me to have the opportunity to come back after spending 13 great years here as a kid, it’s an incredible feeling and I’m really, really excited to get started. “I’m just seein...

Mourinho Reveals Conversation with Manchester United’s Henderson

  AS Roma manager, Jose Mourinho, has revealed his conversation with Manchester United goalkeeper, Dean Henderson, over the Red Devils’ first-choice goalkeeper spot. Henderson has been battling teammate David De Gea to be Man United’s number one shot-stopper in recent weeks.

I don’t think they are phenomenal goalkeepers or, in Dean Henderson’s case, not yet phenomenal,” Mourinho, a former Man United manager, told the Times. “When I say not yet, I say he will be.
