Manchester City are reportedly on the brink of signing a record-breaking kit deal with manufacturers Puma – and the club’s supporters seem pretty happy about it.
The Sky Blues have worn strips made by American giants Nike for the past five seasons but that deal is set to expire at the end of next season, meaning the right to produce City’s home and away jerseys is up for grabs.
For probably the first time in their history, Man City are a genuine force to be reckoned with in European football, and the Daily Mail are citing their status as one of the continent’s big boys for the reason why Puma want involved.
Apparently, the German giants want to pay a whopping £50 million per-season to work with Pep Guardiola’s squad – which would be the largest commercial deal in City history:

Puma offering to sponsor Man City.
Puma don't make many (compared to Adidas & Nike) sponsor, but if they did, it's very smart/good one

What an achievement for @pumafootball this would be! I suspect @ManCity's European success would weigh heavily on @PUMA driving this deal. A top club dominating the latter stages of the @ChampionsLeague. Sorry @Arsenal #mcfc #puma #football https://t.co/FvHqojpjby

What do you think of the news? Is going from Nike to Puma really a step up?
