De Bruyne named 3rd world best footballer behind Messi, Ronaldo
Manchester City’s newest signing, Jack Grealish, has hailed Kevin De Bruyne as the third best footballer in the world behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Grealish is now the most expensive English player ever, after completing a £100million move from Aston Villa on Thursday.
The England playmaker has now spoken of his excitement at playing along with De Bruyne.
“I have spoken about him a good few times. I have always said that apart from Ronaldo and Messi I think he is the best in the world.
“I think he has got absolutely everything. He is another one where I don’t think people give him credit for how fast he is.
“He normally knocks the ball by defenders, his final ball is obviously unbelievable.
“I have never played alongside him, I have played against him a few times, got his shirt, but he is one that I cannot wait to play alongside,” Grealish said in his first interview as a City player.
