Apparently yes. And fucking New Balance or Under Armour are leading the race to take over.

It's sad because our kits this season are gorgeous. I don't think I will be able to handle ugly ass football played wearing ugly ass Under Armour kits

They will wait till the end of the season. The speculation is regarding 2018 summer.

I don't rule out this is a negotiation strategy; we might still renew the contract. If we were to go for New Balance or some shit like that, that'll be immensely irritating.

I'll be happy with Puma or even Nike, but nothing is quite like Adidas.

I don't see us getting flagship money from Under Armour. I think Premier League has taken all of it to themselves for American companies. Possibly/maybe/hopefully.

OFFICIAL: Ciao Ciao Adidas


AC Milan has mutually agreed with adidas to prematurely terminate their technical sponsorship deal at the end of the season 2017/2018. The current partnership, which began on 1 July 1998, has been highlighted by a consistent flow of successes with a total of twelve trophies: 2 UEFA Champions League, 1 FIFA World Club Cup, 2 European Super Cups, 3 Italian League titles, 3 Italian League Super Cups, 1 Italian Cup. adidas started partnering AC Milan back in season 1978/1979, the year of the tenth Italian League title.

AC Milan, in thanking adidas for the consolidated relationship, is happy to announce a new Technical Partner will soon follow up. AC Milan has signed a brand-new agreement with a sports manufacturer for a global technical sponsorship and dual branded licensing partnership that will start from 1 July 2018. The identity of the new Technical Partner and the details of the new deal will be unveiled in the coming months.

According to reports the new deal will be with Puma. Prepare for an era with slim fit jerseys :fp:

I'll be very very happy if it's Puma. Particularly if they can make our away kits look as classy as these:

Don't mind their slim fit jerseys tbh... it's just their outdated designs that kills it for me :fp:

The problem with Puma is their tech isnt as good. I've been buying their jerseys for the last 10 years(because of Ghana) and anything white stains easily, the logo comes off etc.

Sad to see adidas go. But rumours are that PUMA is offering less than what we were getting from adidas and no where close to what they're paying Arsenal.

I've had quality issues with some Milan Adidas jerseys as well. Exact problems that you describe.

These things aren't really meant to last. It's an industry where they want you to make a purchase every season. They'll never maximize life of the product beyond what's basic.

Confirmation that the new deal will be lower than the Adidas deal, but with a higher upside including bonus:
