New sponsor deals
As well as looking for new players, it's the time of year when clubs sign their sponsorship deals for the coming season.
Real Madrid have just announced a three year deal with Siemens IC Mobile and they will be carrying 'Siemens Mobile' on their shirts.
Espanyol have also reached an agreement with Vitelcom, and their shirts will probably carry publicity for Epsilon mobile phones.
Several other clubs are currently still in negotiation with potential sponsors. (17.07.02)
