Tinder has confirmed it is speaking to Manchester United over a possible sponsorship agreement.
Earlier this week, news broke that the dating app was offering Manchester United £12m-a-year to sponsor the club’s shirt sleeves.
The sleeve sponsor is a new commercial opportunity for all Premier League clubs for the upcoming season.
Clubs have been granted the chance to display two sponsors on their shirts, with the Premier League badge set to be replaced with company logos down the left arm of kits.
And Tinder has now confirmed talks are in progress, saying: “We are in talks with Manchester United to explore potential partnership opportunities. We are excited to see what we can do together.”
The advertising space on the left sleeve is said to be valued at 20% of the main shirt sponsor, with Manchester United having already signed a £50m shirt deal with Chevrolet.
According to the Daily Mail, nine other Premier League clubs have signed sleeve deals but none are in the region of Tinder’s reported £12m offer.
