It has been announced that Puma has signed Italian striker and bad boy Mario Balotelli to wear Puma in the upcoming year.

Bartolli will be joining sponsored players Sergio Aguero, Cesc Fabregas, Marco Reus, and Radamel Falceo. Puma is currently ranked third behind Nike and adidas, perhaps a high wattage player such as Mario will bring a competitive edge to the legendary soccer brand.
