​Grealish reveals Terry chat played role in Man City move

Manchester City star Jack Grealish reveals a chat with John Terry convinced him to sign for the club.

Grealish has secured his British record transfer fee move from Aston Villa to the Premier League champions.

Despite the competition for places in attacking areas at City, Grealish believes that he can thrive and justify his £100 million price tag.

Speaking on Monday during his unveiling, Grealish said "I spoke to John Terry at Villa and he said when you're standing there and hear the anthem [Champions League] playing, there's nothing better.

"I can't wait to be doing that.

"It's been difficult, the Tuesday, Wednesday nights watching the [Champions League] games.

"I believe I can play in these games and there's nothing better than watching those games.

"I remember watching City v PSG last year and the standard was outrageous. To be involved would be a dream come true and something I am desperate to do."
