MANCHESTER United are set to sign the biggest shirt sponsor deal in world football.

Internet poker giants Mansion have tabled a huge £60MILLION four-year offer.

And on the eve of the Carling Cup Final today against Wigan, a United insider confirmed: "Mansion are the front runners. Their offer is a fantastic one and officials here believe the deal should be signed, sealed and delivered before the end of March."

Mansion's £15m-a-year offer to replace current shirt sponsors Vodafone beats Chelsea's £50m five-year deal with electronic giants Samsung.

And it is also £1m more than the current world record £14m-a-year BenQ Mobile pay Real Madrid.

Despite speculation, the deal will NOT include any renaming rights of Old Trafford.

United lose current shirt sponsors Vodafone's £9m-a-year backing at the end of the season.

And Bryan Glazer — son of United's American owner Malcolm — has been instrumental in setting up the new deal, alongside United's commercial director Andy Anson.

Mansion, based in Gibraltar, are major players in the world of internet poker and gambling.

The company recently signed the biggest-ever televised poker deal with American TV giants Fox Sports Network.

The only other gaming company currently on a Premiership club's shirts are 888.com, who sponsor Middlesbrough.

United have also held talks with United Arab Emirates airline Etihad Airways and Arsenal's current shirt sponsors O2 — but Mansion are the only company with an offer on the table.

:thumbsup:

Vodafone's £9m a year was quite pitiful in light of what other big clubs are getting. Bad business there, looks like the Glazer's are shaking things up on the entrepreneurial front.

£15m is much better, more in line with our ambitions to claw our trophies back once more.

Only another 35 million a season to find then.

PS: Loving how you judge being the best with how much money you attract AND that you see Madrid as your rival. You're both suited to each other.

Take a hike CardfiffRed, I don't know why you bother posting in the United forum, nobody gives a damn about you. :rolleyes: :finger:

Not jealous at all.

Astounded that you can't see the irony in it all though.

Is this a wind up? Mansion who? Never heard of them.

Will this make a difference to your fortunes? Depends if we're talking league cup or not.

They would have beaten you 10-0. We always beat you, Mallorca would have toyed with you.

We're in different leagues in more than one way.
