Man Utd’s new shirt sponsorship deal worth miles less than Ronaldo’s annual wage

Manchester United have confirmed a new shirt sponsorship deal with snapdragon – but it's nowhere near the value of Cristiano Ronaldo's annual wages.

United will wear the Snapdragon logo on the front of their home, away and third shirts for both the men’s and women’s teams from the start of the 2024/2025 season.

Their deal with TeamViewer was originally meant to run until 2026, but both sides agreed last year on an option for the club to buy back the rights.

United haven't specified the length or the value of the sponsorship – but reports suggested it's in the region of £65million.

That would make the deal the most valuable of its kind, surpassing the £60m deal Real Madrid has with Emirates.

And after the interview he was shipped off to Al-Nassr, where a slew of world class players have since joined him – enticed by the mega-wages on offer in the Middle East.
