WHAT HAPPENED? The Premier League team is aiming for an agreement that would pay them £60 million ($75.1 million) annually as per The Athletic. Given that many imitation shirts have already been sold, it is extremely doubtful that the agreement will go into effect this season; instead, it would be expected to start in time for the next campaign.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: With Qualcomm, a company that makes chips for telecom devices, United already has a partnership. In August 2022, the club inked a contract to promote Qualcomm's subsidiary brand Snapdragon, which is used in many high-end smartphones, PCs, gaming consoles, connected automobiles, smart wearables, and other products throughout the world. As part of the 2022 agreement, Qualcomm also promised to counsel the Red Devils on upcoming mobile connection upgrades at Old Trafford to improve the fan experience.
