The new Adidas Real Madrid deal is reportedly worth about €120m per season based on a fixed fee and a percentage of shirt sales - more than twice the value of the current deal, which is worth about €52m per season.

The new deal means that only LaLiga rival Barcelona do earn more from kit partnership revenue. Barcelona's Nike deal is worth €155m per season, from 2018-19 to 2025-26.

It also underpins adidas’ leadership in the football category. We are proud that we continue to outfit all Real Madrid teams and serve all Real Madrid fans globally with innovative and stylish products.”

Florentino Pérez, president of Real Madrid, said: ” Together, we will continue to build on our strategic alliance that allows us to be the benchmark and leaders of the football industry. Hence, adidas is the ideal partner for us. adidas delivers the best material for on-pitch performance and amazing original products for our fans all over the world.”
