Jack Grealish is one of the biggest stars in the Premier League right now. The Englishman’s dribbling and explosiveness make him a threat to any defense in the world. One can understand why Pep Guardiola and Manchester City decided to spend $117 million on the Englishman.

While his output of goals and assists at Aston Villa was exceptional, the same cannot be said about his stint with the Citizens so far. Despite a very noticeable dip in tangible output, the 26-year-old has received a 35 million market value boost in his transfer market value.

Jack Grealish’s new market value is 100 million euros

Before Jack Grealish’s historic 117 million dollar move to Manchester City, Transfermarkt listed Jack Grealish’s market value at an impressive 60 million euros. His market value increased by 5 million euros to 65 million euros on August 5, 2021, when he moved to Manchester City this year.

Now based on Transfermarkt’s latest rankings, Jack Grealish’s current market value is 100 million euros. This is a stupendous rise of 35 million euros. This huge rise has come as a shock to many because during the past three months, Jack Grealish hasn’t exactly set the world on fire to deserve such a high rise in valuation.

In the seven games in the Premier League, Jack Grealish has just one goal and one assists this season. To compare this with last his last season’s performances, Grealish already had 4 goals and 4 assists in his first 6 games for Aston Villa.

Having started all seven games in the league, he’s obviously convinced manager Pep Guardiola that he’s first-team material, but playing for City is a whole other story. He scored his first goal for his new side in a 5-0 hammering of Norwich. But Grealish’s biggest concern appears to be recapturing the same kind of penetration and cutting edge he displayed as the talisman at Villa.
