Puma looking to sign up Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Vincent Kompany as kit manufacturer prepares for next season’s £50m-a-year kit deal with Manchester City
- Puma want to sign up a number of Manchester City stars to their client base
- The kit supplier starts a £50million-a-year deal with the club from next season
- Striker Sergio Aguero and midfielder David Silva are already signed with Puma
- Vincent Kompany, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane are all targets for the brand
Puma are actively pursuing several Manchester City stars ahead of their £50million-a-year kit deal starting next season.
Sportsmail revealed last year that the manufacturer had signed a deal to take over from Nike, the largest commercial contract in City’s history.
Puma, who already have Sergio Aguero on their books, moved to snap up David Silva last month and are looking at signing others within Pep Guardiola’s squad.

Players would expect to pocket upwards of £1million per season as Puma continue their drive to further impose themselves on the market.
That could interest central midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, who is understood to earn significantly less than those figures on his contract with City’s current kit supplier Nike.
That still has three years left to run and any interested party would have to buy out his current deal.

It is also believed both Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane are on Puma’s radar, with both wingers viewed as easily marketable given their respective ages and burgeoning careers.
The biggest British name associated with Puma is currently Liverpool’s Adam Lallana.
Sterling and Sane are currently with Nike, as is right back Kyle Walker. Puma also look after youngsters Joel Latibeaudiere and Luke Bolton.
