[SPORT] Manchester United have agreed a new kit licensing deal with adidas set to kick in in the 2015/16 season.


The club confirmed on
Monday it has settled terms with the German kit
maker over a contract worth a minimum of
£759m for 10 years. “Manchester United plc
(NYSE:MANU) has reached a ten-year
agreement with adidas for a global technical
sponsorship and dual branded licensing deal
for a minimum guarantee of GBP 750 million,
subject to certain adjustments, beginning with
the 2015/2016 campaign,” a club statement
read.

Meanwhile, new coach Louis van Gaal and his
players will wear United’s new Nike kit for the
2014/15 season, as the Old Trafford club also
announced “Nike will continue in its role of
technical sponsor and trademark licensee.”
Former Holland coach Van Gaal will have just
two-day rest at home before officially resuming
duty with the ‘Red Devils’ this week.

Having just guided ‘Oranje’ to a third-place
finish at the World Cup in Brazil, the 62-year-old
has opted against going on holiday and says he
is already relishing taking charge of the 20-time
Premier League champions. “That is no problem
for me, I don’t need a holiday,” van Gaal said.
“It’s great to have such an exciting challenge. To
work daily with young people is something that
I don’t need time off to rest for. “I’m looking
forward to it. I’ve only met two people from the
daily management at the club – the chief scout
and the chief executive officer. And I’ve met two
of the owners. It’s time that I get to know more
people at the club.”
