With Chelsea facing difficult time convincing some of their key players to a new deals whilst no one know the club’s stance for a new manager this season, there appears to be some good news for the fans.
The club have taken to social media Twitter to announced a shirt-sleeve sponsorship deal with South Korean multinational conglomerate, Hyundai Motor Group. Chelsea’s deal with the South Koren organization replaces Alliance Tyres on the left sleeve, but only in domestic competitions.

It’s believed Chelsea have agreed a four-year-deal with Hyundai Motors and will run out until 2022. The deal said to worth £10 million now becomes the world’s highest shirt-sleeve sponsorship deal since the Manchester City and Nexen Tire deal in March 2017 worth around £5 million.
This is another great achievement from club director, Marina Granovskaia who was said to be responsible for reaching terms with Nike for the club’s shirt sponsorship that will fund us £60m per year to the club until 2032.
Here’s a very great moment for the club, as the means there will be more money available for quality signings. Although it remains to be seen whether this healthy financial state translates to on-field success after an underwhelming campaign last term.
