The 2018/2019 sports season has not even begun and in England, we are already thinking of the next one, but more than football, the focus is on sponsorships. PUMA, which among the twenty Premier League teams already wears Arsenal, Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Burnley, according to numerous reliable reports (as reported by a professional website such as Footyheadlines but also the Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo) would be closed from the conclusion of a recording agreement with Manchester City, starting from the 2019/2020 season.

If the rumors were to be confirmed, the German brand would have offered a monstrous deal of about £ 50 million, far exceeding the one that offers Nike currently, about £ 20 million, and those of others English competitors. Apparently, moreover, the contract would not only involve Manchester City but all the teams of the City Football Group, the international holding company that, in addition to the English club, is also the owner of New York City FC, Melbourne City FC, Yokohama Marinos, Club Atletico Torque and Girona. Only the American team, which has an existing contract with adidas like all 23 franchises of MLS, would remain out of this maxi agreement.
