Manchester United have signed a new shirt sponsorship deal worth £235million – the biggest in Premier League history.
According to the Mirror, United signed a five-year deal with German global technology company TeamViewer to be its principal shirt sponsor for the next five years, with the agreement worth £47m-a-year.
This means TeamViewer will replace United’s previous shirt sponsors, Chevrolet, on the team’s strip from next season which is the largest agreement of its kind secured globally.
Man United are also in the process of negotiating for a new sponsor for their Carrington training complex and their training kit as their contract with current sponsor AON is coming to an end.
Speaking on the new deal United managing director Richard Arnold said: “We are tremendously proud to be establishing this partnership with one of the most exciting and dynamic global software companies.
“The ability to connect and collaborate has never been more important to the world and our community of 1.1billion fans and followers.
“We are looking forward to working with TeamViewer to bring to life our vision for a partnership built on smarter ways of connecting people and businesses.”
