Fox: AC Milan close to agreeing kit deal with PUMA

By Oliver Fisher -

Adidas are reportedly set to end their AC Milan kit deal at the end of the season and the Rossoneri are close to agreeing a deal for a new kit supplier.

Reports from Fox Sports and La Stampa claim that Milan are set to sign a deal to make PUMA the club’s new shirt manufacturer.

Adidas and AC Milan are set to end a 20-year partnership, and although rumours have also linked New Balance and Under Armour with becoming the new suppliers, Puma are now believed to be in pole position for the sponsorship.

The new partnership between Milan and PUMA is rumoured to be worth €10-15million/year, whilst the previous agreement with Adidas was close to €20m/year.

PUMA are the suppliers of the Italian National Team as well as other clubs such as Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and Huddersfield Town. They also supplied the shirts of fellow Serie A side Lazio for 14 years between 1998 and 2012.
