Liverpool's Nike deal to fall well short of Man Utd equivalent

Liverpool's expected deal with Nike is set to fall well short of what Manchester United has with adidas.

The Daily Mail says Liverpool's current deal with New Balance expires at the end of this season but the Premier League leaders have been dragged to court by their current supplier.

Terms of the agreement emerged in court on Friday with Nike paying the Premier League leaders a flat fee of £30m per season.

Liverpool project that could reach £70m with royalties, merchandise sales and on-field bonuses.

And while that is a hefty increase on their £40m-a-year deal with New Balance, it still leaves the Reds trailing their fierce rivals.

United's current agreement with Adidas is also worth a staggering £75m-a-year over 10 years, having come into play in 2014.
