On Thursday night, the Citizens confirmed the signing of the England international from Villa in deal reportedly worth £100 million (R2 billion), which is a new Premier League transfer record.
There were reports that the Villans were trying to persuade Grealish to stay by offering him a bigger salary, but the midfielder has revealed that the prospect of playing under Pep Guardiola is something he could not turn down.
"I am incredibly happy to have joined Manchester City," he told the club's official website.
"City are the best team in the country with a manager considered to be the best in the world – it's a dream come true to be part of this club.
"Over the past 10 seasons, they have won major trophies consistently. Pep (Guardiola) coming here has taken them to the next level and the football this team plays is the most exciting in Europe.
"To play for Pep and learn from him is going to be special and it's something any top footballer would want.
"The facilities are amazing, and I honestly can't wait to get started, meet everyone and get playing."
