According to the Daily Mail, executives at Manchester United are negotiating with a Chinese home appliance group about a 70 £ year shirt sponsorship contract.
Daily Mail reports that Haier Group is keen to replace Chevrolet to become the main sponsor of the Manchester United shirt. Senior representatives of the Chinese company have met the team to hold talks in London, England in recent days.
Manchester United declined to comment for this story. In recent times, the club has often received many inquiries as more information about the possibility of contract termination between them and Chevrolet appeared.
The source said MU wants more than 70 million pounds per season for a shirt contract with Haier, far exceeding the previous £ 64 million of Chevrolet. MU signed a contract with Chevrolet in 2014, and this is still the largest shirt sponsorship contract in the global sports industry.
According to the Daily Mail, the US car giant is looking to end cooperation with the Red Devils in Manchester soon. However, the British team already has contacts with Lego toy conglomerate, Konami gaming conglomerate, gaming giant Yabo Sport from China.
Since Sir Alex Ferguson’s leave, M.U has lost its inherent position, gradually becoming a mediocre team.
For the past 6 years, the Old Trafford team has not known what the Premier League title is. Latest, M.U had to break a sweat to have a 3-3 draw against Sheffield in the English Premier League 2019/20.
Since the beginning of this season, teachers and coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have won only 4/13 matches at the highest playground in England.
It is known that Haier senior leaders were in Manchester last week to negotiate with M.U. This shows that even though the team has not achieved success over the years. But they are still an attractive name on the commercial side.
