MANCHESTER UNITED boast the most-lucrative shirt sponsorship contract in world football.
And things are only going to get better for the Old Trafford giants.
United currently rake in £61million per year from American car giants Chevrolet.
The deal had been worth £64m per season and was due to run until the end of the season.
But with the coronavirus pandemic scaring potential suitors away, Man Utd chiefs opted to extend their deal with Chevrolet by six months.
And now United are in talks with a host of potential sponsors – including a mystery US software firm – over a bumper new contract set to blow everyone else out of the water.
Despite the value of their Chevrolet deal dropping by £3m, United still earn marginally more from their lead kit sponsor than any other club in the world.
Real Madrid come in second, pocketing £60m a season from Fly Emirates.
Barcelona (Rakuten) and Paris Saint-Germain (Accor) come in third and fourth, earning £47m and £43m respectively.
An incredible five of the next six clubs hail from the Premier League.
