Manchester City and England star Jack Grealish is set to make a fortune of £100 million by the time he turns 30.
The tricky winger recently signed the most lucrative football boot sponsorship deal in the country, with Grealish putting pen to paper on a deal with Puma for a reported amount of £10 million per year.
Industry insiders are predicting that Grealish will earn a reported amount of close to £1 million per week, thanks to his exploits on and off the field and his massive following.
Grealish became the most expensive footballer in the history of British football when he signed for Manchester City from Aston Villa for a fee of £100 million and reported wages of £300,000 a week in the summer of 2021.
The season culminated in a Premier League win for Grealish and his new team, and this was followed up with a host of lucrative endorsements coming Grealish's way.
The often down-to-earth Brummie has recently signed a £10million deal with Gucci and a sponsorship contract with boohooMan being worth around £1million.
It is also understood that huge razor brand Gillette are talking up a sponsorship deal with Jack Grealish, which would add him to their collection of global sporting personalities who work with them.
A source close to Grealish said: “The staff at City were stunned to learn how much the Puma deal is worth to Jack and are really chuffed for him.
“We have joked he is now the million dollar man. We reckon he must already be pulling down close to £750,000 a week in wages and commercial stuff — the sky really is the limit for Jack now he is entering his peak years.”
Grealish's popularity goes beyond his performances on the pitch though, as several members of today's youth look up to the City #10 for various reasons.
Youngsters who have starting wearing his trademark headband and teenage fangirls have been visiting the Etihad stadium in attempts to get a peak at their idol.
A source from Manchester City added: “Jack is a licence to print money.
“He will earn £86million in wages over the lifetime of his City deal but all the commercial stuff puts him in another league from most footballers.”
Grealish spoke out on his new £200,000-a-week Puma deal: “They are a brand that’s really caught my eye in the last few years.
“Especially recently, the collabs they are doing with other brands — the people they have on board now in NBA, F1 and football — it’s really eye-catching and it was a no-brainer for me.”
Grealish and Manchester City are currently in a title race against Arsenal, sitting 8 points adrift of the North London side with a game in hand.
Manchester City will play Liverpool at 12:30 on Saturday to kick-off the return of Premier League fixtures, with Grealish looking to add to his 3 goals and 7 assists so far this season.
