Man Utd expect to negotiate world-record shirt sponsor deal

Finally, some positive news for Man Utd and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The first two months of the 2019/20 season have not made for pleasant reading for Manchester United supporters.

Aside from the Red Devils' 4-0 opening weekend victory over top six rivals Chelsea, there really hasn't been much to smile about.

United have only won one Premier League game since - a 1-0 victory over Leicester at Old Trafford - and have looked clueless going forward in recent weeks.

Last weekend's 1-0 loss to Newcastle was arguably their worst display under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's rule and sparked yet more scepticism about his credentials for the job.

A sorry state to be in eight games into the new Premier League season and we reported yesterday that United's shirt sponsor Chevrolet are set to walk away once their current contract expires.

Results on the pitch haven't been good enough for Man Utd

Their reasoning? Results on the pitch, a damning indictment for any top club.

However, there is a silver lining, United fans. That's because ESPN are reporting that United expect to negotiate a world-record shirt sponsor deal after Chevrolet's seven-year deal ends in 2021.

The Red Devils still remain one of the biggest clubs in world football, with a recent survey announcing results that they have 1.1 billion fans worldwide.

Sources have also informed ESPN that any extra revenue generated from a new sponsorship deal will be invested into the squad.

Finally, some positive news on the United front.

While United have spent big in recent years, the investments have been, for the most part, very poor.

So they now simply have to get the chequebook out once again and this time, it's imperative they get the signings right.

Leicester pair Ben Chilwell and James Maddison have been linked with a switch to Old Trafford and they would be two stellar pieces of business.

Chilwell and Maddison at Old Trafford?

But would the two Foxes stars want to abandon Brendan Rodgers' high-flying ship right now?
