Sources close to the club have heard that adidas are close to signing a record deal to take over from rivals Nike to produce the kit commencing on 2015.

Would this be a big deal for the previous premier league champions and could this help with player signing to get superstars in the boots and kit?

We still believe adidas played a massive part in bringing Gareth Bale to Real Madrid as this would increase shirt sales, marketing and overall “big dog” status for the German brand.

Only time will tell if the deal will goes through but we do not think Nike will role over and miss out on one of the biggest shirt selling club in the world.
