Have Rags unwittingly played an ace for City with this Kit deal with Adidas.
If previous record £31m for Real why the need to move it 2.5 times? Surely £35m to £40m would be realistic.
So we must now have serious grounds to challenge the UEFA fine for breaching FFP.
Thanks Rags you could have just payed a blinder for the Blues

We've already settled. Settlement agreement was signed off by City and UEFA months back

But it may help City in future commercial deals by establishing a benchmark.

Rags will always be a money machine, thats what the Glazers want, whether they will be allowed to always spend the money like this summer is open to debate.

This is the most probable benefit for city, in my mind.

Agree with all the above, but it id really such an amazing deal...more than double the second most lucrative. Makes me wonder whether too good to be true...or heavily linked to performance?

With Adidas being the same manufacturer that provides Real's kit – who by all accounts sell the same (if not more) shirts every year as the Rags – the fact that the Rags deal is more than twice theirs stinks to high heaven – surely if nothing else, UEFA should look into this as they did with our Etihad deal, which more and more looks like Etihad got the deal of the Century!

absolutely no chance of this happening.

As I understand it, for a sponsorship to be challenged under FFP it has to be from a related party and represent unfair value. The Rags' Adidas deal is not a related party sponsorship and thus can't be challenged. Our Etihad deal was the same.

What their deal has done is set a new benchmark though, which I think we could use to our advantage. I don't think there's anything stopping our owner setting up a kit manufacturing business and sponsoring City. As long as the deal represented fair value (which would be well more than our £12m deal with Nike considering United's new deal with Adidas), it would be fair game under FFP.

Be nice to have the kits done 'in house' too. Southampton have created their own kits this season and they look very good.
