The U.S. company was already being treated as one of the hottest candidates; now, according to reports by the British newspaper “The Telegraph”, the deal is fixed. According to these reports, the Football Club, will be remunerated with around 77 million Euro per season, which is twice as much as the contract with Adidas, which still runs until 2017. The contract with the company from Herzogenaurach was dissolved six years before its original end, which led to a penalty payment by Chelsea to Adidas. The “Blues” did not wish to make a statement about the term of the Nike contract.
The amount, which converts to 60 million pounds, is still not the largest that an outfitter has paid to a football club. The leader continues to be Manchester United, who received 75 million pounds per season from Adidas.
