When the world’s leading sportswear companies threaten to steal him away from Nike, Marcus Rashford is at the core of a multi-million pound scramble. For a highly lucrative boot sponsorship contract that will send his already legendary reputation soaring, the Manchester United striker is in line.
Puma is one of the companies that is keen to make Rashford the face of their brand, but industry sources anticipate approaches from all the major brands.
Puma is only one of the companies that have already reported a tangible interest in Rashford, who, thanks to his tireless fight against child hunger and his results for United, has become one of the most recognizable public figures in the world – although the player has not participated in any formal conversations outside of his current Nike kit contract.
Puma have turned their attention to Rashford, who they see as the ideal brand ambassador given his legendary status on and off the pitch, after having recently signed Paris Saint-Germain icon Neymar, in a contract worth a reported £ 21 million a year.
