Manchester United and adidas have announced a world record £750M kit deal which will see the German sports brand manufacture the club’s kits for the next 10 years.
The world record sum will see Manchester United receive £75M a year from adidas after Nike pulled out of the running to make the most successful club in England’s kits, ending a 13 year relationship between the two parties.
Many fans are particularly happy about the news, with many not happy about the most recent kit which was released last week by Nike. With the general opinion that Nike’s designs have gone downhill in recent years, fans were begging for adidas to come calling and save the club’s image.
adidas now make the kits for 4 of the 5 clubs who sell the most kits worldwide (Man United, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona and Bayern Munich).
