Neymar To Leave Nike For Puma

Brazil superstar is reportedly set to leave the swoosh and join the big cat, Puma. Neymar has never worn a boot by the German brand Puma.Nike has sponsored Neymar since he was 13 years old. He is set to break his contractual relationship with the Nike brand this coming Tuesday, September 1st. Which boot will Neymar wear he if really is joining Puma? Reputable French journalist Mohamed Bouhafsi has confirmed the reports from Brazil and states that Neymar will leave Nike to join Puma. The official announcement is expected for next week.

Forbes magazine, which ranks him the world’s seventh highest-paid celebrity, estimates his earnings for this year at $95.5 million, including endorsement deals.

Neymar signed his first deal with Nike as a youth standout at Brazilian side Santos, which sold him to Barcelona in 2013.

But his brand, already blemished by tax fraud allegations over his murky transfer to Barca, was badly dented last year when a Brazilian woman accused him of raping her.

Nike expressed its “deep concern” at the time, but stood by the player after police closed the case, citing a lack of evidence.

Neymar will still wear Nike apparel on the pitch: the company sponsors both PSG and the Brazilian national team.

The company sponsors many of the most iconic names in sports, including Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Cristiano Ronaldo, Serena Williams, Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy.
