It appears getting rid of Joe Hart isn't the only baffling decision to come from Manchester City, as the team have announced they will have not one but TWO shirt sponsors next season. Hopefully leaving just enough room for the club crest.
They are the first team to agree two sponsors on their jerseys for the 2017/18 season as next year the Premier League will not have a title and thus clubs are able to have an extra sponsor on the sleeve where Barclays used to occupy.
On Friday City revealed the partnership with Nexen Tire, a tyre manufacturer from South Korea. The Manchester club have had Nexen Tire as their official tyre manufacturer since 2015, but next season is the first time their name will appear on the club's shirts.
'We are delighted to continue our successful partnership with Nexen Tire.' said City Chief Executive Ferran Soriano. And we're sure he really is.
According to the Daily Mail: "City have not disclosed the financial deal behind the sponsorship, but the space is valued at around a fifth of that of a main kit sponsor. Clubs like Manchester United, who receive £47million-a-year from Chevrolet to be on their shirts, could see a further £10m invested in the club.
We can look forward to the days, surely just around the corner, when football players will look like racing car drivers, plastered with Netflix and Evian from head to toe.
