According to Reports, Manchester United still have the best sponsorship deal in the Premier League. The Reds are expected to earn about £64m next season for having the American car manufacturer Chevrolet on their kit. This is the most lucrative deal in the Premier League at the moment.

Chevrolet have been the chief sponsor starting with the 2014-15 season after replacing AON. The deal is 7-year long. It varies every year depending on multiple factors.

“Chevrolet has been dedicated to bringing you closer to your beloved club and players, both on and off the pitch,” reads the company’s description on the official website.

“In return, you’ve inspired us with the ‘never give up’ spirit of football.”

Paul Pogba is one of the stars of this Manchester United squad, and the Frenchman has a high commercial value, which is part of the reason United want to keep the midfielder.

Former Liverpool player, Danny Murphy has advised Manchester United not to keep the wantaway midfielder against his will.

“If Pogba leaves Man Utd this summer then it could cause a series of transfers to take place. Certain teams have expressed an interest in Pogba and if they miss out on him, then those big teams will start to look elsewhere,” Murphy told bwin.

“Eriksen is a very different player to Pogba, but he could be a backup option for a team if they fail to sign Pogba. Then Tottenham and Utd will be in the market for replacements and it has a tumbling effect.

“Man Utd won’t let Pogba leave if they’re not given enough time to find a replacement. The main issue Utd have is that they need a midfielder who can come in and score and assist the number of goals he has. Solskjaer may believe that he can get the best out of Pogba again, but if he really wants to leave then it’s better to sell him.

“You don’t want a player who doesn’t want to be at the club, as it affects the whole team. If every player isn’t singing from the same hymn sheet, then it can divide the whole team and produce bad performances. It’s better to get rid of them as soon as possible.

“If Man Utd let Pogba leave for a hefty fee, then clubs will instantly add a large sum on to any player Utd try to replace him with. The longer they leave it, the more expensive it’s going to be. If Pogba looks set to leave, then Utd need to bring a replacement in before he does.”
