Romeo said that his new partnership with the brand will allow him to embrace his passion for fashion.

Romeo has been training with both Inter Miami and Fort Lauderdale and plays in both defence and attack. 

Speaking to Vogue in March, Romeo’s mother Victoria revealed the teenager was now dreaming of becoming a professional football player like David, who signed to Manchester United when he was just 17. 

She said: ‘Romeo has been training with the team over here every day, because ultimately that’s what he wants to do.’

However the designer insisted she wasn’t going back into ‘football wife mode’ just yet, adding: ‘No, the only reason why I’m wearing my Reebok cap is because I haven’t had time to do my hair.’

In 2014, Romeo and his two brothers Brooklyn, 22, and Cruz, 16, joined the Arsenal Academy, but have all since left.

David said at the time that Romeo had ‘other passions to pursue,’ and Victoria said in 2019 her sons feared letting their dad down when they decided they didn’t want to become football players.

She told the Financial Times: ‘I remember Romeo sitting in the bath getting really upset saying, ”I don’t want to let Daddy down”.

‘So I told him daddy just wants you to be happy. And now he’s playing tennis. Every day.’
