Inside City 382: Grealish signing special

In the latest episode of Inside City, we bring you unseen footage from Jack Grealish’s first day at Manchester City.

After arriving in Manchester the evening prior, Jack completed his medical at the Manchester Institute of Health and Performance on Thursday morning.

Despite it being his first medical, our new No. 10 was his typical easygoing self, including having a brief chat with staff about the latest series of Love Island between tests!


Next on the agenda was a short trip to the City Football Academy, where our midfielder had a quick catchup with Pep Guardiola before signing on the dotted line.

While in transit, Jack can be seen taking in his surroundings before asking whether ‘little Filipe’ (close friend and new teammate, Phil Foden) had returned from his summer break.

The final stop on his hectic schedule saw our new signing travel across to the Etihad Stadium, where he conducted his first media interview and photo shoot as a City player.


And while the whole occasion was hugely exciting for Jack, discovering that he would wear the No. 10 shirt was certainly a pleasant surprise.

“That’s made my day that has, my year actually,” the 25-year-old beamed when he took a look at his City strip for the first time.
