IS THIS a sneak preview of Barcelona’s new mega-money kit?
The former European champions are due to unveil their new strip on Monday May, 30.
However, an image of Lionel Messi, Neymar, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Luis Suarez, and Gerard Pique modelling the new strip was leaked on Twitter.
According to reports, the Catalans have entered into a mega ten-year kit deal with American sportswear giants’, Nike. A deal reportedly worth over £76MILLION annually.
From inception, the Catalans’ moto ‘Mes Que un Club’, which translates to ‘More Than a Club’ extended as far as kit sponsorship from their inception in 1899 all the way until 2011.
They refused to have a label on their shirts as they lived by the rule that nothing was greater than Barcelona.
However, after being catapulted to the greatest team on the planet following unprecedented on-pitch success, things were forced to change behind the scenes with their three-year sponsorship deal with airline, Qatar Airways.
