Manchester United have agreed a mammoth £750million sponsorship deal with adidas.

The German sportswear giant has stepped in after Nike pulled out of negotiations over a new deal last week because it felt United were demanding too much money.

The adidas agreement, described in a statement as "a global technical sponsorship and dual branded licensing deal", will run for 10 years from the 2015-16 season.

The deal with Nike, United's kit manufacturer since 2002, runs out at the end of the forthcoming season.
