According to reports, Manchester United are in advanced negotiations with a new sponsor, US technology firm Qualcomm as the club’s new shirt sponsor.
The club hierarchy have been seeking new shirt sponsors after announcing last year that our existing deal with TeamViewer wouldn’t be renewed.
Report from The Athletic has revealed that the proposed deal with Qualcomm is worth £60m-per-year, though an agreement has not been reached by both parties.
Qualcomm’s deal would surpass the current biggest shirt sponsorship package held by Real Madrid and Fly Emirates.
However, it is expected that any new shirt sponsor would have to wait until next season to start appearing on the front of kits given the amount of replica tops already in circulation.
Qualcomm specialise in providing digital connections through state-of-the-art technology advancements and have recently struck a deal with Apple to provide their new 5G modems.
The American firm, based in San Diego, describe themselves as: ‘Qualcomm is enabling a world where everyone and everything can be intelligently connected.’
