From it does some years the relation between the FC Barcelona and Nike has gone in free fall, but in these last six months the crisis has increased. Joan Laporta commented, in 'RAC1', that "have some interests with Nike that are not the suitable. They have not replaced, they have broken conditions and because the market pays the double", leaving the open door so that they increase, even more, the rumours on a 'divorce' between both marks, after almost 26 together years.

It is not a secret for anybody that from the City Condal have been evaluating the market and there are direct contacts with Cougar, but any decision will arrive in the future. The Barça is conscious that the relation with Nike can not finish of a night to another, because there is agreement in force until 2028 and, in case to break it of unilateral way, would have to assume an economic penalty that, as 'Relief', rondaría the 300 million euros.

The relation between the Catalans and the company American multinational is just right more taut. The before quoted source recognises that the club is presionando so that it open a door for the negotiation of the improvements of the conditions of the current agreement, that signed in 2016. All the communications carry out through burofax, but has not existed some change or positive answer.

From the City Condal value all the alternatives of face to the future, from signing with Cougar until 'fulfil' the option that Joan Laporta put on the table to dress they same. They are conscious that Nike will not have intentions to change the conditions, taking in account the form in which they renewed in 2016, with the triplete of LaLiga, Glass of Rey and Champions League recently livestock, as well as the presence of Leo Messi, Neymar Jr and Luis Suárez in the staff.

'Tranquility' in Nike

In the actuality, would result difficult to surpass the figures of this agreement -80 million euros by season, as 'Relief'-, although from the club keep that yes there are upper offers to dress to the Barça. In Nike, on the other hand, keep calm and do not fear on the possibility that the agreement break before 30 June 2028, as it is foreseen. In case that the club 'tighten', have like reference and example the case of Vinicius Jr, when it decided to break the agreement of unilateral way but, after a jucio, went back to work of the hand.
