MANCHESTER CITY star Jack Grealish was spotted sporting a pink tracksuit ahead of the side’s Champions League clash in Madrid on Wednesday.
Grealish, 26, is reportedly “on the verge” of landing a lucrative seven-figure sponsorship deal with Italian brand Gucci.

Grealish became Britain’s most expensive footballer with his £100million transfer to City last summer, putting pen to paper on a £230,000-a-week contract at the Etihad.
But now he is ready to sign another agreement, this time with fashion giant Gucci.
Grealish, 26, regularly wears their luxury designer garments and was seen wearing an £800 hoodie last week.
And according to The Athletic, the playmaker is about to secure the clothing deal.
The report adds having a sportsperson land this type of role is virtually unheard of.
Instead it is usually actors and musicians who would promote the labels in this way.
But it is a testament to Grealish’s global recognition and appeal that he is closing in on this landmark contract in a World Cup year.
City will head to Spain to face Atletico in a tasty return leg in the quarter-finals of Europe’s most elite competition.
Pep Guardiola’s men take a 1-0 lead into Wednesday’s crunch match.
The boss was forced to step in to stop a confrontation between Jack Grealish and his Madrid antagonists in the first bout.
The England star came on for the final 30 minutes at The Etihad but had an eventful match.
Seconds after coming on he was bundled over by Rodrigo De Paul and that was just a sign of things to come.
He was fouled throughout and at one point, while lying on the ground, Angel Correa smashed the ball at the winger, hitting Grealish’s face.
Tensions eventually boiled over with Grealish confronting the opposition leading Guardiola to shove his own player to keep him out of trouble.
Even as the referee blew for full-time Atletico players were still trying to get under Grealish’s skin, with Šime Vrsaljko and Stefan Savic aggressively shouting in his face and pointing fingers.
