The Italy international joins a host of top soccer stars on the brandâ€™s endorsement roster, such as Sergio AgĂĽero, Cesc FĂ bregas, Marco Reus and Radamel Falcao. He will wear Pumaâ€™s evoPOWER Stampa FG line of boots.
â€śThis is a great move for me,â€ť said Balotelli.
â€śFrom the early conversations I had with Puma it was clear that they understand me, my personality and my ambition. The product and marketing plans they have developed are very exciting and I will be proud to be associated with everything I have seen.â€ť
According to Puma, Balotelli is a â€śkey signingâ€ť for the brand who will â€śbecome a key assetâ€ť in its â€śbrand and football communication over the coming yearsâ€ť.
The 23-year-old will also â€śplay a significant roleâ€ť in promoting Pumaâ€™s ongoing partnership with the Italian Football Association (FIGC).
â€śPumaâ€™s support for the Italian national team was another instrumental reason for me signing this contract and I am sure that the coming years will bring many good things for us all,â€ť Balotelli added.
