Memphis Depay To Leave Under Armour
Update: Memphis Depay has debuted the Nike Mercurial Vapor 14 Dragonfly boots. His time with Under Armour is likely over and he could sign with Nike.
However, he might only choose to wear Nike boots without having a contract with the Swoosh (Nike did not extend the contracts with various players in the past 12 months). We will keep an eye on his cleats in the coming weeks.

Memphis Depay's boot switch comes as quite a surprise as there was no info that his deal with Under Armour would be over. It is also unexpected as Nike has recently not extended the contracts with various players.
However, Under Armour has been in financial trouble since more than a year, when they had to delay payments for their athletes.
Depay has never worn Nike boots in his career. He had been sponsored by Adidas since his youth and wore the brand's F50 boots before joining Under Armour.
