Manchester United’s record kit sponsorship deal with Adidas continues to stand as the biggest in the Premier League.
United receive £75 million each year as part of a deal which was agreed in 2015 and will run until 2025.
Yesterday Arsenal struck a deal with Adidas which will begin next year. They will command only £60 million per year.
Chelsea receive £60 million each season, The Mail report, with Tottenham following at a distance. They earn £30 million each season from Nike.
Can United’s deal be toppled?
Liverpool and Manchester City’s current deals are both up for renewal this summer.
City currently receive £20 million each year, and Liverpool £25 million.
They are both likely to substantially increase their own earnings, but as Arsenal discovered this week, United are the benchmark when it comes to commercial appeal.
Neither City or Liverpool are likely to earn £75 million United receive, and will fetch figures closer to Arsenal’s range.
This summer United spent less than the £75 million kit deal received on transfers, buying Fred for £53 million and Diogo Dalot for £19 million.
CEO Ed Woodward is great at raking in the money, but not the man United fans want in charge of spending it.
