He wouldn't have had the marketing exposure he has here that he had at Villa.He could have been famous and rich and unquestioningly loved at Villa. Could have committed his entire career to them, to moving them up towards the top half of the PL. Win a cup one year, sneak into Europe another...they'd be carving the statue and naming a stand after him before he retired. He was adored, idolised and protected. He was their highest paid player and they'd have paid him more to keep him.
He came to City to push himself, to work with the best manager in the world, to play with some of the best players, and to win stuff.
Don't let the fact he's got a funny hairdo and does a bit of modelling make you think he's not serious about football.
It's not the hair or the modeling I have no issue with that at all, What I have an issue with are the stories that came out about him showing up to training hungover, or the fact that only a few nights ago he was up till 3 AM watching a boxing fight before a massive game mid week posting about it on his IG story, and it should be noted this isn't the first time we have read about his antics off the pitch.
I'm not advocating selling him but at the same time, He needs to decide whether he is more interested in the lifestyle or whether he wants to buckle down fight for a place and win.
