Manchester United and Nike will not be business partners after the current season, as Nike feel that the figure Manchester United want in terms of money isn’t plausible for their business model. Adidas are the current favourites to take over the role as kit sponsor, but don’t rule out Warrior just yet…
The deal is thought to cost up to £70million a season, whereas at the moment Manchester United receive around £23.5million from Nike. This will eclipse any current kit deals in world football at the moment, as Real Madrid are the highest earners, and they currently receive around £30million a year from Adidas.
Personally, I’d like to see Adidas take over. Their kits are nice and plain, but effective. Look at Real’s current white and blue kits, and they look extremely tasteful.
Just had a statement from Nike confirming they will not be renewing their kit deal with #mufc

At the end of the day though, it is quite a task to make a kit look nice with that horrible Chevrolet logo plastered across the front.
