Major Sponsor Chevrolet To Fund Manchester United's Move For Cristiano Ronaldo
They already share one of the biggest sports sponsorship deals with Manchester United, but Chevrolet is looking to go the extra mile to ensure their client is happy.
But at the same time, you can't deny that it would definitely benefit them too.
According to reports, American car manufacturers Chevrolet look set to inject more money into the Premier League giants in a bid to lure Cristiano Ronaldo back to the red side of Manchester.
While an exact figure is still unknown, Auto Esporte claim Chevy will invest heavily in making sure United secure the Juventus goal machine who spent six years at Old Trafford.
Back in 2012, Chevrolet signed a then world-record deal with Manchester United to be their major sponsor.
The seven-year £450million (AU$813million) contract saw Chevrolet's iconic logo plastered all over United's iconic red, white and black kit.
But in that time frame, United haven't exactly flourished in the rather miserable post-Fergie era.
Since Sir Alex Ferguson's departure and Chevy's arrival, the club has seen countless big-name players and managers come and go after failing to make their mark - a revolving door system that has cost the club a fair bit of cash.
And while their performances on the pitch have been pretty underwhelming to say the least, the circus act running the club hasn't been much better.

To say that the club has been wasteful with their finances in recent years would be an understatement.
But after recently adding another six months to their sponsorship deal, car giants Chevrolet are keen to change United's fortunes around.
And they've got their eye on a man who is definitely capable of doing that.
While tickets and putting bums in seats isn't a major factor at the moment, there's no doubt that the arrival of Ronaldo at Manchester United would see shirt sales go through the roof.
And on top of that, it's understood Juventus' shares skyrocketed by 30 per cent following his move from Real Madrid back in 2018 - something the likes of Ed Woodward and the United officials hope they can replicate if they sign him.
But at the age of 35, an extortionate transfer fee for CR7 isn't what the Red Devils are worried about - it's his hefty wages.
The six-time Ballon d'Or winner rakes in a reported £365,000-a-week (AU$659,000) at Juve and it's understood he'd be asking for around the same if he were to leave the Old Lady.
It's this sum of cash that Chevrolet will lend a helping hand with.
