Jack Grealish signs new long-term boot deal with Puma ‘worth considerably more’ than his previous contract with Nike… after the £100m star recently played in blacked-out boots to hide the iconic swoosh
- Puma have officially announced a lucrative partnership with Jack Grealish

- The brand manufacture City’s kits and have now landed one of their big names
Jakc Grealish has penned a lucrative ‘long-term’ boot deal with Puma after cutting ties with Nike earlier this year.
The Man City star wore a pair of blackout Nike Phantom GX boots against Tottenham in January in a nod to him leaving the American sportswear giant.
He debuted his Puma Future Ultimate Supercharge boots in against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground and the England star has now officially been unveiled as a marquee addition by Puma.
The deal, according to the Athletic, is ‘worth considerably more’ than what he earned from Nike.
Grealish joins Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann, Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic and PSG star Neymar as part of the Puma football stable.

Grealish is one of the Premier League’s most marketable stars, not least since his £100million switch to Manchester City in 2021.
Last year fashion giant Gucci moved swiftly to tie Grealish down to a seven-figure endorsement deal – and now he has added Puma to his growing sponsorship deals.
‘We want to make Jack one of the most important brand faces in football and culture,’ Johan Adamsson, Head of Sports Marketing at Puma Global said.
‘His position opens up opportunities to work with many of our fashion initiatives and to collaborate with him on his many personal causes.’
Puma manufacture Manchester City’s kits and to land one of Pep Guardiola’s star players represents a major coup.
Having tied up a lucrative new boot deal, Grealish is now eager to kick on and score the goals needed to deliver Champions League success – starting next week in their last-16 second leg against RB Leipzig.
‘I’ve got a Premier League medal but I want to win as many trophies as possible and be successful here at City,’ he said after the announcement.
‘I said before that when I was young (my dream) was to play for Aston Villa. Once I conquered that I had another dream, then another one.
‘It was never really to play at a World Cup, it was just to play for Villa, then score for Villa, then the next thing, then it turned to playing for England, then playing at the Euros, at the World Cup, scoring at the World Cup.
‘Luckily enough, I’ve been fortunate to have done all of those. Next in line would be to win a major trophy with the national team, and the Champions League.’

Along with Puma, Grealish has endorsement deals with Gucci, Bose headphones and Airwayz
Having settled another brand deal, Grealish is now focused on winning the Champions League
As a regular for City and an established England international, Grealish’s stock off the pitch is rising all the time.
As well as Puma and Gucci, the Man City star can count Bose headphones and Airwayz among his endorsement deals.
Puma will hope Grealish is a fixture of City’s team for years to come having tied up a long-term manufacturing deal.
City and Puma inked a 10-year deal, starting in the 2019-20 season, worth a reported £65m per season.
