Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Manchester United are reportedly eager to end their nine-year association with sponsors, Russian national airline Aeroflot.

New CEO Richard Arnold is looking to cut short the current partnership deal that runs until 2023, according to the Mirror.

United are claimed to be aware that continuing to associate themselves with the name will cause global damage to their brand.

The two parties first teamed up back in 2013, with Aeroflot acting as the club’s official carrier ever since.
