Manchester City have one of the deepest squads in the world. The Premier League champions have multiple world-class players in every position, and while it might be good for the team, some players do miss out on minutes. Currently, that player at Manchester City is England star, Jack Grealish.

Grealish was one of the best players in the Premier League last season with Aston Villa and almost single-handedly saved them from relegation with his performances. However, he has failed to replicate that at Manchester City and is seemingly struggling in this Pep Guardiola’s system where he’s not allowed to have much of the ball.

Jack Grealish sees his market value drop in the latest Premier League update

Transfermarkt released their recent update for the Premier League, where they updated the market values of all the players in the league. They also released the list of the top 30 most expensive players in the league and there were a few surprises. It was a three-way tie at the top as all three of Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku, Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah, who are valued at 100 million euros.

However, there was a bigger shock for City fans when they saw Jack Grealish’s market value drop down a whopping 20 million euros. The Englishman was worth 100 million euros in the summer, but that has now dropped drastically down to 80 million euros.

Interestingly, Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne also dropped down from 100 million Euros to 90 million this time.

Meanwhile, he has a goal and an assist to his name in the UEFA Champions League in five appearances, but both of them came in one match against RB Leipzig in September. He hasn’t had a goal contribution in the UCL since then. What do you make of Jack’s time in Manchester so far?
