Nike set to end their kit supply deal with Man United; Adidas expected to pounce [Reports]
- July 7, 2014
Nike are set to end their kit supply deal with Manchester United, citing that sponsoring them no longer makes ‘commercial sense’, according to reports.
The sports giant has been manufacturing Man United kits since 2002 but they are going to end their relationship when the current deal expires next year.
The reason for this is said to be United’s outrageous demands on Nike. Currently Nike pay £23.5 million per season. According to The Mirror, United want to up that price to £60 million starting next year, an offer which doesn’t make ‘commercial sense’ to Nike.
United only revealed their new kit for next season today, with the Nike crest intact on the jersey.
Adidas are expected to fill the void and negotiate with United who will need to back up their financial demands with results this season.
