Adidas to Renegotiate 2023 AC Milan Kit Deal

La Repubblica reports that Adidas would want to revise downward the contract with Milan as the negative results of the team have flatten the sales of Adidas AC Milan gear. Milan, who ranks 16th place among the top European clubs in terms of shirt sales, last season just sold 200,000 jerseys. Juventus, who get 23 million Euro from Adidas per season, sold twice as much. Therefore, Adidas wants to renegotiate the contract with Milan.

It is not known if the Three Stripes will be able to revise downward the current deal as both parties have a valid contract until 2023.
