Manchester United closing in on world record kit deal

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are set for a summer of change with the Premier League champions on the brink of appointing a new manager, signing several new players and changing their official kit sponsors.

The Red Devils have been sponsored by Nike since 2002 but are now closing in on a world record deal with the American sports brand's arch-rivals adidas.

Manchester United have been locked in talks with several sportswear companies over the past few months as their £300million 10-year deal is due to expire at the end of next season.

The Daily Mail believe Nike have the option to automatically extend their deal with Manchester United by matching any offer put to the north-west giants.

However Nike are unlikely to fork out £60million a year on such a sponsorship deal - despite the fact Manchester United remain one of the world's biggest sports clubs.

American sportswear company Warrior are also said to be in the running to produce Manchester United's next batch of kit however adidas remain the leading contenders to replace Nike.

Manchester United's commercial team reportedly held talks with adidas in Germany after their Champions League second leg tie against Bayern Munich at the beginning of April.

And the German sports brand appear to be in the box seat to sign a deal with Manchester United after successful discussions.
