Manchester United ‘close to £70m-a-year shirt deal with Chinese firm Haier’

Manchester United will reportedly secure a new shirt deal worth £70m with Chinese firm Haier ahead of next season.
Senior representatives of the Chinese corporation, whose brand value is said to stand at around £12.6bn, have held talks with United over the last few weeks.

United’s current shirt sponsorship deal is with American car company Chevrolet, who agreed a seven-year deal with the club in 2014.
