    The guy who said Dalot 2 hours before also said before Grant was announced. He also said about Kohler some 10-15 days back but said it will be announced next day, so he is just around 2 weeks early.

    That's not the Griezmann guy though. There are two ITKs. One is Kohler and Griezmann the other is Kohler, Dalot and Grant.

    Yes. That's what I said. The guy who posted about Kohler month ago got 1 thing correct, this deal.

    The guy who posted later got 3/3 correct.

    Yeh, the Griezmann thing is obviously bollocks since he's extended. The ITK even said he was '90%' on Griezmann.

    Those that think we are finished in the market are wrong, we are still trying to get more players it seems.

    Yeah, don't think we are done. Assuming we will sign at least 2 more players.

    It's too noticeable IMO. Takes us a bit too close to those Formula 1 drivers who are covered in all sorts of shit for a few $$

    I think there is still lots of space on the kit. F1 styles is the way to go...!

    I like the plain white logo's, be great if we could get something similar for the main one next time it comes round as it really gives you free reign with the kit design. Can't Woody get Coca Cola or something onboard next time?

    Or else his contact (who was most likely some marketing employee for Kohler) was stretching on the BS and the Reddit guy fell for it.

    There's always one :lol:

    At a time where other Premier League teams are sticking bloody Angry Birds and tyre manufacturers on their sleeves, we manage to bag a deal with an exceptional company with an understated logo and people are still moaning.

    We're a long way from this:

    Today he suggested we'd be making two more signings before the window is shut but said he couldn't say anything more than that at the risk of being strung up like the Griezmann guy.

    Great a sleeve sponsor, I wish Ed would put more effort into trying to get new signings in and ridding of our deadwood, although what we might consider deadwood Jose thinks are star players/signings (Fellaini) so I suppose can't blame him for that one. It just seems Utd are more interested in getting all these sponsorship deals done than seeing to getting the team back to competing at the top level.
    It looks like we are slowly but surely starting to turn into Arsenal, Top 4, Champions League qualification, job done.

    Yeah, sleeve sponsor on a shirt is like blue hair on Pogba's head. Need to choose where time and effort is being invested. Next you know Jose is having his toenails done and Carrick buying a Fred Perry polo. Disgrace.

    Get the feck in. Great signing, gives us the option of a big man up front.

    Agreed. Hence his desire to find and appoint a football director.

    Would be a great kit if not for the garish Chevy logo.

    If Kohler are the, or even a principal partner then it should be a lot.

    Just go on R/reddevils and you should be able to find the stuff about Kohler and Griezmann on the second or third page.

    Nothing that I have heard about. I'm not too sure whether Ribalta could fit into this role, depending on his success with us over the next year or two I suppose?!

    £20m per year. Well done, Woody.

    For comparison;
    Arsenal £10m per year
    Chelsea £8m per year
    Liverpool £5m per year
    City £7m per year.

    This deal was reported ages ago.

    Why is everyone acting like the only way we knew about it was from the Reddit ITK??

    That guy is not very reliable and that was the only source reporting it.
    Also it came out after the reddit guy had posted that Kohler was going to be out sponsor

    No need to apologise.
    Stolen from Wikipedia, sorry.

    . He was promoted Group Managing Director and Director of Manchester United PLC on 1 July 2013, assuming control of the club's business operations, after Chief Executive David Gillwas replaced by Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward.[4] Arnold sits on the board of Manchester United Television (MUTV) and Manchester United Merchandising Limited. During his time at the club, he has been instrumental in growing the global appeal of the Manchester United brand, opening commercial offices in Mayfair (London), New York City and Hong Kong.[5][6][7] Arnold has overseen the signing of a number of lucrative sponsorship contracts, including a world record 7-year $600 million (USD) kit sponsor deal with General Motors/Chevrolet (2014), and a $1.3 billion sports equipment deal with Adidas over 10 years (2015), the most valuable in sporting history.[

    Very good. That's 5% of 40 year old Sanchez's weekly wages.

    Logically and legally no way, because sleeve sponsor can't be more than 20% of main sponsorship deal. If you want 30 mil per season your main kit sponsor needs to be 150 mil per season, and no club in the world is at that level yet. Chevrolet deal is the most expensive in world football at 53 mil per year.

    Pfft, no way for small club like Arsenal.

    Already mentioned that Arsenal deal is 30m over 3 years, so it's 10m a year.
