MANCHESTER UNITED had the most-lucrative shirt sponsorship contract in world football.

But, they will have to find someone else to decorate the front of their famous jersey.



United used to rake in £61million per year from American car giants Chevrolet.

The deal was worth £64m per season and was due to run until it ran out in 2021.

United then turned to US software firm TeamViewer who signed a five-year deal with the club worth a whopping £235million.

However, that will end after this campaign – with TeamViewer pulling the plug after they saw 70 per cent of their share price wiped off by their association with the club.

Real Madrid come in second, pocketing £60m a season from Fly Emirates.

Barcelona (Rakuten) and Paris Saint-Germain (Accor) come in third and fourth, earning £47m and £43m respectively.

An incredible five of the next six clubs hail from the Premier League.
