Manchester City are in the hunt for a new shirt sponsorship deal after their £20 million-per-year deal with Nike has been far surpassed by their rivals, report the Daily Mail.
The Daily Mail report that Chelsea and Manchester United earn £60 million-per-year and £75 million-per-year respectively, and City are eager to agree a new deal in that bracket.
If, as the Daily Mail claim, Chelsea are to be paid three times as much by Nike as City are as of next season, Pep Guardiola’s side have a right to feel aggrieved.
The tabloid also notes that should City fail to agree terms with Nike, Under Armour are the most likely company to be their next kit manufacturer.
Despite not receiving as much money as their rivals, City have continued to make waves in the transfer market. Guardiola added John Stones, Leroy Sane, Claudio Bravo, Nolito and Ilkay Gundogan to an already star-studded squad in the summer. It is frightening to think their financial power is not yet at it’s maximum potential.
