Jack Grealish signs 'British record contract' as he agrees long-term boot deal in major brand change | The Sun
JACK GREALISH has signed a reportedly British record contract with Puma.
The brand will take over from Nike as the Man City star's boot sponsor, as he revealed on Instagram.
Grealish had worn Nike boots for his entire career but now he joins the likes of Neymar and Antoine Greizmann as part of Puma's roster.
The Telegraph have reported that the deal could see Grealish get a "blockbuster record-breaking boot deal for a British player".
This could see him earn more than the deals that Harry Kane and Gareth Bale had.
Grealish is already an ambassador of brands such as Gucci, Bose headphones and Airwayz.
