Like it were 1989 all over again, Arsenal have confirmed that Adidas will be supplying their kits as of next season.
The contract is reportedly worth £300million (only Manchester United and Nike have bigger supply deals) and will see Adidas furnishing the Gunners for the prevailing five years.
This season’s horrendous, pink-sleeved botch job will be the last strip supplied by Puma, with the new arrangement set to kick in on July 1st, 2019.

At last, an end to Puma’s ugly, skin-tight reign of tyranny.
Obviously, now the only question on everybody’s lips is whether we’ll be seeing a spectacular return for the ‘bruised banana’…
Now that’s what true aesthetic beauty looks like – and the kit isn’t bad either.
