On Friday afternoon, the Premier League side announced that their deal with Chevrolet will come to an end this season, and that they have found a new sponsorship partner in TeamViewer.

"Manchester United today announced that it has signed a new five-year agreement with the global technology company TeamViewer as its principal shirt partner. The partnership will begin with the 2021/2022 season," a statement on the club's official website read.

"The agreement will bring together one of the world's most popular and successful sports teams with one of Europe's fastest-growing software companies.

"The partnership will harness the power of Manchester United's unrivalled global platform to showcase the unique capabilities of TeamViewer to transform the way the world works and interacts.

"With its name on the front of the most iconic shirt in sport from the start of next season, TeamViewer will build worldwide awareness of its technology enhancing workplaces and daily lives."

According to The Sun, United will earn €55 million (R975 million) annually over the next five years, which is a slight downgrade on their previous deal.

The new partnership ensures that the Red Devlis are level with FC Barcelona in terms of the income the Spanish giants gain from their kit sponsorship deal with Rakuten, while Real Madrid currently have the most lucrative partnership with Fly Emirates, understood to be worth €70 million (R1.2 billion) a year.
