Nerazzurri agree on mega-money renewal which could top rivals.
Inter Milan have agreed on a new sponsorship deal with Nike which could see them earn over €200m over the next 10 years.
The Nerazzurri are in line to earn €20m per year, but that figure could further increase depending on sporting results.
The agreement takes the partnership between the club and organisation beyond 25 years, and places the Serie A giants near the top when compared with how much their rivals currently earn.
“The new sponsorship deal further strengthens Inter’s position as one of the world’s top clubs and confirms its desire to continue expanding globally,” read a club statement as reported by Football Italia.
“Thanks to this agreement, Inter can now look forward to a bright future on the world stage with the backing of a strong brand that ensures continuity for the project.”
La Gazzetta dello Sport reporter Marco Iaria has provided details on the how much the top clubs in Serie A all earn with their respective deals, which suggests that Milan currently top the list but their agreement with Adidas is set to expire in 2017.
Sponsor tecnici: Milan-Adidas (fino al 2017) 20 mln, Inter-Nike (2024) 18, Juve-Nike (2015) 15, Roma-Nike (dal 2014) e Napoli-Macron 8. #gds

Juventus are also competitive in this regard, however it is undoubtedly an area of improvement for both Roma and Napoli who bring in just €8m per year.
With speculation continuing to suggest that Inter could be the subject of a takeover bid from wealthy Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir, supporters will be further buoyed by the work being done by the current administration as they work to improve various sponsorship deals.
