The 28-year-old, who won the treble with City last season, is set to use his new deal to boost his £31million net worth beyond that of his teammate Erling Haaland, who won the Golden Boot. This new deal with Pepsi adds to his current brand ambassador roles for Puma, Gucci, and Bose.
An anonymous source informed The Sun that Grealish is set to earn another million with his new Pepsi deal and that he and Vinnie have already filmed their parts for an upcoming advertisement to be released later this year. The source also emphasized Grealish’s significant value to Pepsi due to his track record of success, comparing him to other big-name players like David Beckham and Lionel Messi.
Grealish’s co-star, Vinnie Jones, is an established actor with a career spanning over 20 years. Despite his success in acting, his net worth is little over half that of Grealish’s.
On the other hand, within Grealish’s Man City team, only Kevin De Bruyne has a higher net worth at £56m. Grealish is also the team’s third-highest earner, with a salary of £16m.
Recent controversy arose following Grealish’s benching by Pep Guardiola for their Premier League match against Brentford. This marked the England star’s fourth successive benching, with reports indicating that he left training early.
Grealish’s lack of starts is attributed to returns from injury for players like De Bruyne, Haaland, and Jeremy Doku. Although Grealish has made 18 starts for City this season, he has made substitute appearances in all but five games.
Looking ahead, Manchester City is set to play Everton at the Etihad on Saturday, with kick-off at 12:30 pm on TNT Sports.
