Spanish giants Real Madrid have agreed a world record 10-year deal with Adidas, which will become the most lucrative shirt deal in the history of football.
Madrid have had their kits made continuously by Adidas since 1998, although their first involvement came in 1981 – before the La Liga side switched to Hummel in 1986 and then latterly with Kelme.
According to Marca, Real Madrid and Adidas will continue to be linked until 2028 with a massive €1.1billion deal set to be announced.
The deal would be a world record deal as it dwarfs Manchester United’s £750million deal with Adidas which was signed in 2013.
It would also top the £140million El Clasico rivals Barcelona pick up a year from Nike.
The cash will come in handy as Real Madrid look to redevelop their Bernabeu stadium.
Since being sponsored by Adidas, Real have won six La Liga titles, and six Champions League crowns – including three in their last three seasons.
Nike and Under Armour were also keen to pinch the lucrative contract from Adidas but Real’s loyalty paid off for the German giants.
