Chelsea’s £25m Turkish Airlines deal stalls [divider]
Chelsea’s proposed £25 million per-year shirt sponsorship deal with Turkish Airlines has stalled according to the Daily Mail.
The Blues would have earned an extra £7 million per-year if the deal goes ahead. Chelsea’s current shirt sponsor Samsung pays £18 million per-year.
The deal would be the second most highest shirt sponsorship deal in the Premier League after Manchester United and would have propelled the Blues above Arsenal and Liverpool in terms of shirt revenue.
United’s current shirt sponsorship with Chevrolet is worth £52 million per-year.
Turkish Airlines is the fourth-largest carrier in the world by number of destinations.
The airline recently struck an individual deal with Chelsea legend Didier Drogba as well as Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
Drogba and Messi have become Turkish Airlines brand ambassadors and featured in the viral video #EpicFood.
