Nike says it is still in discussions with Manchester United over renewing its kit deal with the Red Devils amid reports that it has ended negotiations.

It has been claimed this week that Nike, who signed a 13-year deal with United in 2002, decided against continuing their relationship with the Premier League club.

It is understood that Nike has the right to match any offer tabled by a rival supplier as part of their current kit deal with the Old Trafford club – but it has been reported that the sportswear giant is unwilling to meet United’s asking price, which could be as much as $1bn over a 10-year period.

However, a Nike spokeswoman said talks were ongoing according to the Manchester Evening News, saying: “Manchester United are a great club and we remain in discussions with them.”

The news comes in the same week that Manchester United unveiled their new home kit for the 2014-15 season.
