Nike’s new kit deal guarantees only £30million a year to Liverpool
The current manufacturers have also begun legal proceedings with the Reds after claiming to have met a ‘matching clause’ in their contract to match the latest offer.
However, Nike’s offer does come with some surprising bonuses and benefits.

The report adds that Nike will also offer Liverpool 20% of all net sales related to club products should the deal be clinched.
Legendary athletes such as Serena Williams and LeBron James would also promote the Liverpool brand while music sensation Drake would also be roped in, according to the report.
This would certainly give us a different kind of boost as the stars will help push the brand more, especially in the American market.
However, the guaranteed income is lower than the likes of Tottenham, Chelsea and even Paris Saint-German. The French giants earn £71m-per-season with Nike while the English pair make £50m-a-year (h/t Liverpool Echo).
It will be interesting to see who end up as our kit manufacturers next season, as Nike certainly have put up a different proposal.
