Manchester United have announced a seven-year shirt sponsorship deal with General Motors.

Chevrolet, the club's official car partner, will become only the fifth shirt sponsor in the club's 134-year history from the 2014-2015 season, in an agreement that has been signed for an undisclosed amount.

United's commercial director, Richard Arnold, told the club's official website, "This is a fantastic, long-term deal for the club.

"We have been partners with Chevrolet for only six weeks, but already they have produced some fantastic ideas that will benefit both the partnership and our 659 million followers around the world."
