Manchester City may switch from their current kit supplier, Nike, to Puma next season. According to kit news buster, Footyheadlines, quoting UK Daily Mail, Manchester City is close to agreeing terms with Puma to become the club’s new kit supplier starting next season.

Manchester City’s contract with Nike is up after the current season, and it’s looking increasingly likely that it will be Puma’s turn to take over at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City would be a third high-profile addition for Puma in the 2018-19 season after the German brand already added AC Milan and Olympique Marseille to its portfolio.
This imminent deal would not only shatter the current Nike one, worth £20 a year at most, but become the largest commercial deal in Manchester City club history. It’s estimated to bring in £50 a year, second only to Chelsea (£60m) and Manchester United (£75m) inside the Premier League.
