After a day of speculation, it has now been confirmed that sportswear giant will not be making Manchester United’s kit from next season.
Late on Monday night a Reuters report claimed Nike would not continue their deal which ends next season, this was swiftly denied on Tuesday morning before a final confirmation.
This all came just hours after Manchester United’s new kits were revealed with the rather large Chevrolet design on the front.
Perhaps it is a reflection of the figures Manchester United were asking for – or that last season’s struggles mean the Old Trafford side are not the force they once were.
The same could of course be said about Nike in English football as from season 2015/2016 they will no longer make the kits for either Manchester United or Arsenal.
Adidas have been tipped to take over the Nike deal at Manchester United, but there are even some suggestions that Warrior, producer of some rank awful Liverpool kits, may also be in the bidding.
