40M is UNDERVALUED? What the hell?

Manchester United can get a sponsor for their training shirts that will pay MORE than most other clubs in the premier league main shirt sponsor LOL.

That means MORE than 10m a year for just training shirt sponsorship. Which is how valuable the club must be to advertisers.

Apparently Newcastle's brand new main shirt sponsorship deal which includes stadium naming rights is a mere 8m a year. Chelsea's main shirt deal is about 18m a year, I would imagine United are looking for 15m a year just for the training tops!

The Glazers are such a pain, but if there is one thing they can point to that is they have improved the commercial side of the club. Of course they need to, because of the burden they have dumped on it...

they have debts to pay and 40M isnt enough. the glazers need more dammit. MOOORREEE! MOOOORRRREEE!!

Good riddance. dhl is a crappy company from several personal experiences.

DHL isnt crappy at all. Just expensive

I like DHL because they are our colours Red and Gold but if we get more money then I'm happy.

People can moan that it goes to the Glazers but they have spent 100m in the last 2 seasons on players and it's not like we are Arsenal who make lots of money but never spend and sell our best players. Those owners really are rinsing the club dry.

The question is where the hell Chevrolet got "£357 million" to spend on this..

zeddy1456d ago (Edited 1456d ago )

Chevrolet are owned by general motors who are worth billions.

Kaneda1456d ago
