With Chevrolet’s logo slipping off Manchester United‘s shirts in December, Ed Woodward is reportedly teeing-up a new £70m sponsorship deal which could provide a huge boost at Old Trafford. 

The American car manufacturer has been emblazoned across the front of United’s kits since 2014 and was set to be canned in the summer until, amid the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, the club triggered their option extended by six months.  

The £64m-a-year contract to be plastered onto United’s shirts for a dire period in the club’s history is the largest in the game, but Woodward appears set to pull-off another massive deal.
