England international Jack Grealish has officially changed his footwear supplier. On Monday, the German sporting goods manufacturer PUMA announced that Manchester City’s midfield star should be the figurehead in the future.
Grealish laced up in boots from US giants Nike for almost his entire career. However, this cooperation ended some time ago. Grealish has been wearing PUMA Future Ultimate shoes since February 18th.
The telegraph reported in January that the 27-year-old will sign a record kit deal for a British athlete with PUMA. A sum was not mentioned, but Grealish is said to earn more than the previous top earners Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) and Gareth Bale (now retired). They earned the equivalent of around 4.5 million euros. The contract period was not mentioned, but PUMA said it was a “long-term” deal.
PUMA is said to have initially tried to sign Grealish’s national team-mate Raheem Sterling, but the Chelsea striker chose New Balance as his new sponsor. It is now another lucrative sponsorship deal for Grealish, last year he entered into a collaboration with the Italian fashion company Gucci.
Grealish joined Manchester City from his hometown club Aston Villa in 2021 for €117.5m. This season he has made 33 appearances in competitive games. The left winger scored three goals and six assists.
