Man United sign mega kit deal with Adidas

Manchester United have signed a record-breaking deal with sportswear manufacturer Adidas worth the equivalent of €940m over 10 years.

The Old Trafford club will receive €94m a season from Adidas.

The German company will provide United with training and playing kits and have the exclusive rights to sell and distribute dual-branded products globally.

Adidas said it expects the deal will generate €1.8bn in sales for the duration of the contract.

Current kit sponsor Nike recently decided that it will end its association with United at the end of the 2014-15 season.
