By in News

Manchester United could be set to receive a major boost in their reported interest in Lionel Messi – by their new sponsors.

åÊ

Adidas will replace United‰Ûªs current sponsors Nike at the end of the season in a deal worth a massive å£750m over a ten-year period, and they could make an immediate impact at Old Trafford.

åÊ

According to the Express, the german sportswear giant are prepared to help fund the surprise move for the Argentina international, with Messi already a client of theirs.

åÊ

Louis Van Gaal‰Ûªs side have been linked with a move for the Barcelona superstar after the 27-year-old revealed he cannot guarantee he will be with the La Liga giants this time next year.

åÊ

Any potential deal would likely have to meet Messi‰Ûªs release clause of å£195m, along with a further å£100m in wages. United‰Ûªs hierarchy have handed their Dutch manager an unlimited transfer budget to help bolster their squad with a number of star names, but they may be helped out by Adidas.

With reports suggesting the playmaker has fallen out with manager Luis Enrique at the Nou Camp, the talk of a move to the Premier League increases with every passing day.
