Uruguayan FC Barcelona striker Luis Suárez is set to leave Adidas after more than a decade to join Puma, according to Spanish media reports. Luis Suarez has been wearing Adidas soccer cleats since his time in Ajax.

In fact, Luis Suarez had been sponsored by Adidas for 11 season. Ahead of the 2018-19 season, he will change brands for the first time since 11 years. Before he joined Adidas in 2008, Luis Suarez wore Nike soccer boots.

"In the Spanish Supercopa against Sevilla, if Luis Suarez will play, he could still wear Adidas boots, but what seems to be confirmed is that the league season will start with Puma," reported the Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo.

No financial details of Suárez's contract with Puma are known yet. Mundo Deportivo said that "it would be one of the highest sponsorships in the market in this regard".

The Uruguayan national team's top scorer still has not joined Barcelona's pre-season training. He is expected to begin the pre-season training at Barcelona on Monday.
