Manchester United have clinched a record £300million shirt deal with Nike that will keep the Red Devils wearing the swoosh icon for another five years. The deal will be a world record fee for a soccer shirt deal.

It’s more than triple the amount of money that United currently receive under their current deal with Nike, and it smashes the previous world record of £31million a year by adidas/Real Madrid.

United are expected to officially announce the deal as early as Friday.

    thats a lot of money for a team that won’t be in the champions league next year

    • Mufc77 says:

      When you actually make it into the competition then you can talk about other teams.

      What’s the verdict on Eriksson so far this season. I haven’t had the chance to see any spurs games yet. How’s he playing and do you think he’s going to adapt to a more physical league?

    • Frill Artist says:

      Typical dust.

  3. Ramon says:

    Kind of boggles my mind how much money some one will pay to put their “swoosh” logo on the uniform.

    • Casey G says:

      as a Liverpool Fan that swoosh is whole lot more worth than that garbage Warrior is producing for us. I would gladly take it any day for half the price instead of Warrior.

  4. Marc says:

    Bring back the classic umbro kits.

  5. CTBlues says:

    Chelsea’s new deal is for 30 million pounds a year.
