Antoine Griezmann is on the verge of leaving his current boot sponsor, Puma, at the end of the season. According to FootMercato, the French striker is unhappy with the performance of his current boots and is looking for a new partner.
Griezmann has been with Puma since 2017, and has worn the brand’s Future boots throughout his time with the company. However, the 32-year-old has reportedly been frustrated with the boots’ durability and performance.
Decathlon is reportedly the frontrunner to sign Griezmann. The French sporting goods retailer has been expanding its football business in recent years, and signing a player of Griezmann’s caliber would be a major coup.
Griezmann would be a perfect fit for Decathlon. He is a popular and marketable player with a global following. He is also a proven winner, having won the World Cup with France in 2018.
A deal between Griezmann and Decathlon is not yet finalized, but it is reportedly close to being completed. If it does go through, it would be a major move for both parties.
Griezmann’s departure from Puma would be a significant loss for the company. He is one of the most prominent players in the world, and his signature boots have been a popular seller.
However, the move would also be a major opportunity for Decathlon. Signing Griezmann would give the company a high-profile endorsement and help it to establish itself as a major player in the football boot market.
