Chelsea And Adidas End Sponsorship Deal

Sponsorship of Adidas for Chelsea FC is coming to an end after mutual agreement.

If you thought that the sponsor company only pays the club to sponsor its games, you are in the wrong. This time, in order to break the deal, the club has to pay up a significant sum. Adidas is known to be one of the largest gear makers for athletes in Europe. The company had a sponsorship deal with Chelsea Football Club. The company had tied up and agreed to sponsor its games and sportswear as well. The pact is being ended about six years before the contract would have expired.

Adidas, the German based sports and athletic wear and Supplies Company, stated that the agreement with the club would end by June 30th 2017 instead of June 2023 which was the initial deal. The agreement is being ended to allow the club to start another agreement with another competitor brand. The rival company has not been named as yet, but it will probably be between Puma and Nike. Puma is also a German based athletic wear brand that usually takes up competitive deals with Adidas. Continue reading “Chelsea And Adidas End Sponsorship Deal”

Alex Song, a summer target of Chelsea?

Alex Song played the entire past season on a loan deal with West Ham United where he managed to play at a fairly high level; he didn’t manage to stand out in any particular way but the Cameroonian midfielder did his job well.

There were moments when his performances were clearly underwhelming and this was why he was dropped to the bench on a number of occasions in the last stages of the season but it wasn’t a horrible season for the player who is currently performing for Barcelona.

If rumors are indeed true and Chelsea as well as Manchester City are interested in signing Alex Song, he might turn into a big summer target for these 2 top clubs of the Premier League.

Alex Song is a player who can serve as a defensive midfielder and can also be placed in the defence of any team but in the case of Chelsea, he might be placed behind NemanjaMatic and be utilized as a holding midfielder.

A transfer fee in the region of €6 million could be enough to snatch Alex Song and if either Manchester City or Chelsea are able to sign Alex Song it would be a good transfer for any of the Premier League clubs as Alex Song has already has experience performing in the English League after performing with Arsenal for over 10 years and he is eager of getting into a top club and winning titles.
