Japanese fashion company Uniqlo are being linked to talks with Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says Japanese fashion brand Uniqlo are being linked with a big sponsorship at Manchester United, which could help explain the long delay around Nike's renewal of their kit supply contract.

Uniqlo, who sponsor golfer Adam Scott and tennis's Novak Djokovic, are expanding around the world and would be a neat fit for United.

Nike have 'matching rights' with any kit supply contender but United are exploring other options and American brand Warrior are prepared to spend big, as they showed with their £300million Liverpool deal.
