Nike set to pay Man United $1 billion to make their shirts [Sunday Express]

The rumours surrounding Nike renewing their deal with Manchester United have been swirling for some time.

Just days after Arsenal agreed a 30 million pound a season contract with Puma, the Sunday Express suggest Nike and Manchester United will come to an agreement on a 70 million pound a season deal.

As a result, the deal will be worth one billion dollars – hence the headline at the top left of the paper above.

Nike’s current agreement with Manchester United runs until the end of the 2014/2015 season.

A mock up of what Manchester United’s kit could look like for the next campaign is below.
