Manchester United to offer summer signings new car

Next Story

Manchester United will instruct new summer signings to drive Chevrolets to their Carrington training ground each day, according to the Daily Mail.

The Premier League champions have a £357m sponsorship agreement with the US car company that will see Chevrolet adorn the United shirt from the 2014-15 season.

And United will offer every first-team signing this summer a brand new Chevrolet - on the condition that they drive them to work.

United's top stars were often pictured last season driving into Carrington in new Chevrolets and the club wants to maximise exposure for the brand by getting their latest recruits behind the wheel as well.

The report has picture evidence of Antonio Valencia, Jonny Evans, Patrice Evra and Tom Cleverley all driving to the training ground in the latest models.

The American car giant will replace US insurance company Aon as main club shirt sponsor from 2014-15 in an seven-year deal.

Aon has instead signed an eight-year multi-million pound agreement to sponsor the Carrington training ground.

United's complex will be known as the 'Aon Training Complex', while the US insurance company will also get their name on United's training kit, their branding across the club's summer tours around the world and shirt sponsorship for non-competitive friendly matches.
