Nike released a statement today that they are proud and honoured to be part of Manchester United partnership and would like to thank the club and supporters, but going forward they don’t thing that kit suppliers contract with United represent good value for money.

Which means Adidas will be the front runners from what could be the biggest kit contract in the history of football, United were hoping to tie up a deal with Nike for £60 a year but Nike opted against it and contract talks were halted since Adidas made Manchester United. Its been atleast three months since three parties are trying to set a deal and it was Nike who opted announced that they are pulling out of the new deal. This is the third high profile club in last one year which Nike has lost, previously Arsenal ditched Nike for Puma while Juventus signed a deal with Adidas as well.
