Manchester City have officially left Nike and signed with Puma, as the club and their enterprises look to make more money from commercial deals and sponsorship.
Mundo Deportivo report Puma will also see Girona wear their brand, and the deal will extend to all of the City brand, baring their MLS branch, New York City FC.
The deal will come into place from 2019/20, and it’s set to be one of the biggest sporting deals in the world, with the club only going from strength to strength under Pep Guardiola and adding more trophies to their remit.
This summer, City have been quiet in terms of their business and seem to be focusing on the current players they have – not bringing in more talent and add to their already amazing squad.
Considering they won the Premier League at a canter last time out, that’s not exactly a huge shock, with the club having more talent on the field and the bench than many other sides, and Guardiola keen to give chances to the fringe players and the younger stars.
One thing they will have to do is sort out the future of Joe Hart, who is of course someone who City fans like – yet who has seen his career take a downwards spiral in the last few years and is now struggling to find a club he feels is good enough for him, and who will pay his wages.
