Chelsea have secured the most lucrative shirt-sleeve deal in the Premier League after revealing Hyundai as their new £40million sponsor.

And two Chelsea fans got to join their heroes in a photoshoot unveiling the new kit.

The South Korean car manufacturers are spending £10m per season to have their logo printed on the players’ sleeves in domestic games, starting from next season.

Chelsea already rake in £40m a year from main shirt sponsors Yokohama Rubber and a further £60m from kit-makers Nike.

But the £40m total from Hyundai outstrips any Premier League rivals when it comes to advertising on shirt sleeves, which was first introduced last summer.

Arsenal recently penned a £30m, three-year deal with Visit Rwanda, while Manchester United are understood to be close to a similar agreement with American kitchen and bathroom firm Kohler.

Chelsea will wear their new shirts, complete with sleeve sponsors, for the first time on July 23 when they face Perth Glory in a friendly in Australia.

While they have their sponsors sorted however, Chelsea are still uncertain about the future of their manager, Antonio Conte.

The Blues have been stuck in limbo as they wait to see whether lawyers acting on behalf of Maurizio Sarri can get him out of his contract stand-off with Napoli. 

As it stands, Conte remains in charge, although his players do not expect him to be there for the start of the 2018-19 season.
