Not so fast! New Balance to wreck Nike's Liverpool plans

New Balance could yet remain Liverpool's kit sponsor next season.

Their €50m-a-year agreement expires in June and in England it's claimed a deal with Nike has been struck.

It's been suggested the American sportswear giant will pay €90m-a-year to partner with Liverpool.

However, Foot Mercato says New Balance are ready to play their trump card.

As part of the existing agreement, there is a first refusal option which will be triggered should New Balance match the highest offer.

And it's suggested they see value in sticking with Liverpool - even at €90m-a-year.
