Manchester United is close to agreeing a £70million-a-year deal to replace Chevrolet as the club’s shirt sponsors, according to reports.
The Red Devils have used the American car company as their main sponsor on their kits since the start of the 2014-15 season after agreeing a huge deal worth around £450m in 2012.
The seven-year agreement, thought to be worth a staggering £64m each year, is still the biggest shirt sponsorship deal in world sport.
However, with the contract due to expire in 2021 and Chevrolet believed to be looking for an early exit, The Sun claims that United are nearing a deal with the Haier Group.
According to the publication, executives from the Premier League club have held several talks with the Chinese company about featuring one of their brands on their shirt in place of their current sponsors.
