On the heels of terminating their deal with adidas, Chelsea have announced that they will be moving to Nike in a deal worth £60m-a-year to the West London club.
The magnitude of the deal combined with the bump in the Premier League's TV revenues means that Chelsea will be awash in cash this summer without having to dip into Roman Abramovich's deep pockets. The Blues had to pay adidas £40m to get out of their current deal but with Nike doubling what adidas was paying, Chelsea will break even on that pay-off in a little over a year and net an additional £30m-a-year from that point forward. Excellent business when combined with recent deals done with Yokohama and Carabao which will bring in an additional £50m-a-year. Not bad to have £110m-a-year coming in the door before the first ball is ticket is taken or the first dollar of TV revenue is realized. Chelsea are expected to use the funds to pursue a premium priced forward like Gonzalo Higuin to supplement Diego Costa. May 18 - 10:07 AM
