Jack Grealish Shares Behind-The-Scenes Footage Of Erling Haaland's Welcome To Man City

Jack Grealish has shared footage of Erling Haaland's welcome to Manchester City, including the striker's short and sweet speech, and you can see the video below.

Haaland is without doubt the biggest signing of the summer, even if he's not the most expensive, and fans are waiting to see if he hits the ground running.

It's more or less accepted that if the Norwegian gets going straight away in the Premier League then City could run away from rivals Liverpool, having only beaten them to the title by one point last season.

Fans are obviously expecting the 22-year-old to continue his utterly outrageous goal scoring record in his career to date, with a majority of Fantasy Premier League players picking him.

Interestingly it seems that the new signing is already forming a bond with Grealish, who joined the club last summer, with already laughing at his new mate when Pep Guardiola pranked the England star.

Grealish was also clearly prominent in the welcome video, taking it for one, but also singing the former Borussia Dortmund star to the 'stage' and calling for his speech.

In it Haaland thanked the physio staff specifically, and his history of injuries will certainly be one of things that could hold back his ability to shine in England, especially with Guardiola revealing that 'niggles' are keeping the player out of pre season games right now.

As well as helping his new teammate settle in in training, Grealish is also responsible for the former Red Bull Salzburg forward feeling no pressure.

Whilst he doesn't come across as someone who feels pressure anyway, Haaland revealed to the former Aston Villa captain that the fact he cost nearly half as much as City's record signing means he's not too phased by the move.

City's pre season really got going on Wednesday night, as they faced Club America in the NRG Stadium, for their first friendly of the summer.

Whilst Haaland was missing, Grealish was involved, although not quite in the way he'd have expected, as he managed to get in a scuffle with the opposition's goalkeeper over an incident in which the keeper tried to help the forward.

They next face Bayern Munich at the weekend before reacquainting themselves with fierce rivals Liverpool in the Community Shield on July 30th.
