FC Barcelona's supplier, Nike, has been with the Catalan club since 1998. The American sports brand replaced Barca's old supplier, the Italian brand Kappa. Nike and FC Barcelona have reportedly not agreed on a new deal and could split after over 20 years as partners.

Nike and Barca have a contract that runs out until the end of the 2027/2028 season. The Catalan club can earn a minimum of $ 115 million a season, but the maximum earnings could be as high as $169 million a year, depending on the team's performance in all competitions. The partnership could soon end because of Barca's intention to make a bigger deal. Both Nike and Barca have not agreed to a deal for a new contract extension. Barca is looking at clubs like Puma and New Balance to negotiate a bigger deal than they already have with Nike. Barca can terminate the contract in a year or two since it is allowed to announce an early departure from the current deal 2 years before the expiration date.

Puma is rumored to replace Nike to sponsor Barca kits sooner rather than later. Puma already sponsors Manchester City and pays the English club $82 million annually. Puma also sponsors other big European clubs, like AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund. Puma would like to add Barca to this list, but it will come with a big price, which has Barcelona's interest in getting the deal done quickly.
