Manchester United have signed a record breaking £750million deal for German sportswear brand Adidas to become the new manufacturer of their kits, according to The Guardian.

End of Nike era

The decision by current sponsors, Nike, to end their 12 year partnership with the club created a bidding war between Adidas and US brand Warrior, but it is the former who have secured the lucrative deal.

The deal will be a welcome boost to United and their new boss Louis Van Gaal, with the mega deal compensating for the loss of revenue suffered by United after their failure to qualify for this season's UEFA Champions League.

Transfer boost

The deal allows United to remain as competitive as ever in the transfer market, with the club being linked with big money deals for stars such as Angel di Maria, Arturo Vidal and Mats Hummels.

Adidas will manufacture the kits from the 2015/2016 season and are believed to be looking the the designs of United shirts from the late 1980's as inspiration.
