Man City | Jack Grealish, in the eye of the hurricane

The winger, who has made an unconvincing start to the season, is backed by his manager.

 He's not having an easy start to the season after being plagued by doubts last year, 

and patience is running thin.

In 2021, Manchester City paid a whopping €117 million. for Jack Grealish, the Aston Villa
star .and unbalanced winger selected by Pep Guardiola to reinvigorate his attacking

potential. A footballer who scored 6 goals and gave 4 assists in 39 games last season.

But he did not start this course at his best level. With 5 games played, he has already. caused some criticism among fans. Although his coach came to his defense in the last hours, assuring that he hopes he will be a crucial player for his project again.

Man City | Jack Grealish, in the eye of the hurricane

"When he faced the full-backs, only Erling was there. Guendo was not there, Kevin was not there when they should have been in the penalty area. In the first half, especially when we had the ball, we did nothing to help the players who had the ball and give him more opportunities to make it easier for him. I am more than happy and satisfied with what he is doing. Now it's just a matter of time before he regains some of the momentum he had at the start of the season," his coach said in the press room yesterday, analyzing his performance against Borussia Dortmund.

He also made it clear what they expect from this player, "We do not sign his incredible goals or assists at Aston Villa. I also want him to score goals and make passes, but it's not just about that. It's also about his contribution off the ball and what he can do for others."

Pep Guardiola's praise for Erling Haaland

Days after he was introduced again, in this case against his former club Borussia Dortmund, Erling Haaland has once again fallen into the mouth of Pep Guardiola. In this case during the press conference that the Catalan coach gave to the media this Friday.

"He is an exceptional striker, I have said that many times. But at his age, I think his ambition is to get better, and he will. He's a perfect person, a good guy, that's the most important thing. With the quality he had before he came here, he did what he does. We have not added many things to his game," the coach said.

The two Premier League giants who rejected Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland (22 years old), who has become a world star by scoring goals and scoring more, has not passed the filter of many teams that would now pay real millions to have him in their ranks. In this sense, FC Barcelona excluded the Norwegian when he left RB Salzburg because the 20 million euros that the Austrians demanded was too much. In the end they paid 18 million euros for Martin Braithwaite.

As John Vik, the sports director of Molde, assures, Arsenal and Liverpool also rejected the Nordic striker: "Liverpool and Arsenal could have taken him. Everyone was there to see him (Erling Haaland), but these clubs saw a '9' that was big and wide and said, 'Oh, he will be a target player.' I could not understand why they put him down like that."

The defender Chelsea have on their agenda

The Londoners will try again in the winter market for one of those players who could not be integrated in the summer. The Blues are still interested in this central player.

Despite the fact that he has just undergone a change of coach and is looking for a sporting director, with all that that obviously entails, with a squad like that of Chelsea FC we are dealing with the fact that they are now clearly looking in the winter transfer market. Because they are looking to improve their results.

And in this case, the London Evening Standard reports that despite the recent arrival of Graham Potter, the plans to improve the blue unit have not changed. That he wants to resume one of those goals that in this case they could not achieve during the summer transfer period.

Edson Álvarez back on the stage

And that player, reported by the mentioned media, is none other than Edson Álvarez. A Mexican central defender who, with his 24 years, already shone at Ajax in Amsterdam, who did not want to lose another figure on the market. And this despite the fact that the English offered almost 50 million euros for this footballer.

But they will try again to convince Alfred Schreuder's team of this player, who has scored 1 goal and 2 assists in 7 games for the Ajax team this season. A strong defender who is currently showing an excellent level in Europe. That he could take a big payoff.

Richarlison explains his departure from Everton

Long linked to Real Madrid, Tottenham was finally the team that let the cat out of the bag and signed Richarlison (25 years old). The Brazilian attacker was one of the best players of the struggling Everton FC, which was just one step away from the historic relegation to the Championship, the second English league.

The player, who now plays for Spurs and contributed 2 goals and 2 assists in 7 games, explained his decision to leave Goodison Park: "It's always a difficult decision when you have such a strong bond with your club, and that was definitely the case for me. I was happy at Everton and I am grateful for everything I learned there. It's a great club with a long history. But perhaps it lacks ambition today. The drive to win games and trophies. I spent four years there and could see that there is still a long way to go to achieve great things," the Brazilian told FourFourTwo.
