United bag £40m kit deal
Manchester United have secured a £40m training kit sponsorship deal with DHL which will see the club match Manchester City's £10m-a-year shirt earnings with Etihad and almost double Arsenal's £5.5m annual deal with Emirates.
The agreement, believed to be the first of its kind in the Premier League, is unrelated to the £80m, four-year agreement with Aon as United's principal shirt sponsor and will see the club bank £10m a year over the next four years by simply having the DHL logo on the training kit worn by the first-team, reserves and youth players at the club's Carrington base.
