Jack Grealish makes same move as Lionel Messi and Vinicius Jr as lucrative deal announced
| Last updated
Manchester City star Jack Grealish has made the same move as Lionel Messi and Vinicius Jr, agreeing another lucrative deal.
Grealish has become something of a phenomenon in terms of marketing, landing high-profile endorsements with the likes of Gucci, Bose headphones and Airwayz.
He is now also one of the faces of Puma's football brand, pocketing £10 million-per-season by wearing their boots.
However, recent reports suggest that Grealish has added yet another mammoth sponsorship to his collection.
The Sun say that Grealish has penned a seven-figure deal with fizzy drinks giants Pepsi.
Eight-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi has been a Pepsi ambassador for a number of years, as has David Beckham.
In recent years Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr has been drafted in.
But Grealish has joined the ranks and is in an upcoming commercial with Vinnie Jones filmed in January.
A source told The Sun: “Jack is banking another million with his new Pepsi deal.
“It’s for a new advertising campaign with Vinnie Jones who has also been signed up.
“Both of them have filmed their parts for the advert and it’ll be seen by fans later this year.
“Jack is worth every penny as far as Pepsi are concerned because everything he touches turns to gold. It’s a really fun advert, and Jack and Vinnie are following in the footsteps of other big players like David Beckham and Lionel Messi.”
The news with Grealish follows on from fellow Midlander Jude Bellingham reportedly landing a huge new gig.
The Real Madrid sensation is an Adidas athlete and helped design the brand's 30th anniversary Predator 24 boots.
But according to Footy Headlines, Adidas are set to give him his own signature logo.
This honour was handed out to the likes of Beckham, Messi and Ronaldinho and the early indications are that Bellingham's trademark celebration will feature.
