Manchester United set to announce world record deal

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United are on the verge of announcing a world record kit sponsorship deal with Nike that will be worth an estimated £600 million, according to The Mirror.

The ten year deal means Nike would pay £60 million per year to produce Manchester United’s kits and would dwarf the current record deal of £31 million per year held between Real Madrid and Adidas, as well as United’s current deal that is worth £23.5 million per year.

When combined with the £35 million a year Chevrolet deal that will start next season to replace AON as our shirt sponsor, it means United will rake in approximately £100 million per year just through shirt sponsorship and that doesn’t include anything to do with our training kit deal from DHL or the deal for Carrington to be renamed the AON Training Complex – as well our countless endorsement deals.

It’s no wonder Ed Woodward has claimed that Manchester United can financially cope without money from the Champions League for one season and it certainly shows that we’ll have the financial muscle even if we don’t make the top four.
