Since we are interested in the news of football equipment and this passion gave us the idea to launch the site footpack.fr, it is difficult to remember a year when the equipment manufacturers were so numerous.

Who will be the players who will change equipment suppliers in 2021?

In addition to these various changes which are now part of history, we are now interested in these players who could be the actors of the #bootsmercato of 2021. Whether they are training or playing at the moment with hidden cleats or even already with the current colors of the brands, many players seem close to switching from one brand to another and thus to fold the cards of sports marketing on the football planet. But who are they? To already prepare for the year 2021, we are talking about them.

Robert Lewandowski : Nike > Puma ?

After Neymar, Robert Lewandowski could be Puma’s new big hit! Seen twice with the prototype of the German brand on his feet, Lewandowski is still a player under contract with Nike today.

By securing the services of the best number 9 in the world, Puma could achieve a huge blow, the second in a few months.
