Kaka Effect? São Paulo to Sign Adidas / New Balance Kit Deal?

Some weeks ago, Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola revealed that Under Armour would be leaving São Paulo ahead of the schedule because of continued losses. Now the ESPN FC author reports that the club hopes that Kaka's possible return to their team would push the club's negotiations with two sports equipment companies: Adidas and New Balance.

According to Nicola, São Paulo would like to make a contract similar to its current one with Under Armour, which is worth R $ 15 million in cash (4 million Euro) per season and R $ 12 million in uniforms - the tricolor still has guaranteed a minimum value of R $ 5 million in royalties per year with shirts sold - and the club thinks that only with Kaka they could get similar values.

Please note that all these information should be taken with a grain of salt as the whole story is not based on hard information but rather on speculation.
