The Three Lions star completed a British record move from his boyhood club Aston Villa to the champions of England last week.
The winger got his first minutes in sky blue late-on in City’s Community Shield defeat to Leicester City at the weekend, and was unveiled by the club in a press conference on Monday.

Grealish will face high expectations amongst Pep Guardiola’s superstar squad, and the star plans on matching them with long-awaited European success in 2022.
‘The club were so close to winning it last year, one goal away from winning it,’ Grealish told his presser on Monday evening.
‘That’s exactly why I’ve come here, that’s what the manager said to me when we’ve spoken.
‘I look around the changing room and there’s so much talent and so much depth that I fully believe we can win it this year.

‘We have some of the best players in the Premier League and the depth in every position is just crazy. We’ll be looking to win that this season along with every other trophy.’
The 25-year-old has big ambitions as he steps up to the highest level, but revealed Lionel Messi wasn’t the only one shedding a tear over the end on an era.
Grealish is a lifelong Villa fan and joined the club as a six-year-old. The the former skipper found it tough to move on, having been Dean Smith’s talisman for so long.
‘It was one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever had to make but it was just something I couldn’t turn down, the chance to challenge for trophies and play alongside the likes of Kevin de Bruyne who I’ve looked up to for the last few years,’ Grealish added.
‘I reported back for pre-season when the manager (Dean Smith) wanted me back. So I went back fro a few days and it was obviously difficult because I knew I might be going going. I didn’t really train, I did some stuff on my own.
Everyone’s seen the way Messi was yesterday at his final press conference and that’s the exact way I felt myself.
‘I spoke to the team, the staff and the players before i left and I teared up myself. I felt it was time for me to move on, I’ve always said how much I wanted to play Champions League football and I couldn’t do that with Villa this year.
‘I have a club here to have so much potential and they’ve shown so much faith in me.’
