Manchester City forward, Jack Grealish is on the verge of signing a lucrative sponsorship deal with an Italian fashion line, Gucci according to reports.
The Athletic reported that the deal could earn the 26-year-old English left-winger seven figures and he would become the first spokesperson to sign an endorsement deal with the fashion outfit.
Over the years, Jack Grealish has been seen flaunting Gucci and even French fashion brand Louis Vuitton via Instagram. He often attends most of his social functions dressed in products from the fashion brands.
Apart from being a personality that loves the Gucci brand, he is a handsome-looking footballer who seems to be an outgoing person. The fact that he decided to leave Aston Villa for a more elite club like Manchester City for a British transfer record fee worth £100 million last summer has increased his market appeal across the world.
Talking about having a market appeal and being sociable, Jack Grealish currently has close to five million followers on Instagram and close to a million followers on Twitter which are a fair number of audiences to sell a brand to.
Hence, Grealish has indirectly set up himself as a person worthy to earn a good amount of money being a brand ambassador of an international fashion brand like Gucci.
If the deal materializes, Grealish would be involved in a series of promotions and campaigns geared towards promoting the Italian fashion brand.
