|New United Deal - EXCLUSIVE||10/30/08|
Manchester United has signed a new multi-million pound sponsorship deal with Swiss watch manufacturers Hublot.
Hublot, which provided the timing at Euro 2008, has paid a reported �4m for a three-year partnership deal with the Champions League holders.
It joins Saudi Telecom, Budweiser, and Seoul Metropolitan Government as sponsors who have committed themselves to Manchester United this season.
The Swiss firm will now have its brand name around Old Trafford stadium.
United's shirt sponsor AIG has recently been, in effect, nationalised by the US Federal Reserve.
AIG required an $85bn (�52bn) loan last month from the the US central bank in order to avoid financial collapse in the face of the global credit crisis.
At the time, United refused to comment on whether AIG's plight endangered any sponsorship money it might be owed by the giant US insurer.
After signing the Hublot deal, Man Utd chief executive David Gill said: "We are delighted to welcome such a prestigious partner as Hublot to the Manchester United family."
Jean-Claude Biver, chief executive of Hublot, said it was "an extraordinary partnership for Hublot".
Hublot was founded in 1980 by Carlo Crocco. As part of the sponsorship deal, the luxury watchmaker is to produce a Red Devil watch, with a 45- minute counter - the time of a half of play in football.

We went down to Bar�a one fine day in May,
With all the fans drinking to Busby's birthday,
And when it was over, and when it was done,
We'd defeated Bayern Munich by two goals to one.
The first was by Teddy, he out-foxed the rest,
The second by �Ole!, to finish our quest,
We could have scored 4 and we could have scored 9,
But we didn't start playing 'til injury time!
The Germans they thought that they had it sewn up,
Their ribbons were already tied on the Cup,
But Teddy said "Hang on, it's not over yet",
As he steered the ball into the back of the net.
From Beckham's next corner, Teddy got the first touch,
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said "Thanks very much",
The Bayern defenders fell down to the floor,
As from round the Nou Camp came an almighty roar!
If they'd asked the Scousers or Juventus Turin,
They'd have known it's not over 'til the fat lady sings,
When you're playing United, as they found to their cost,
One minute you're winning and the next you have lost!
United keep fighting and never give up,
That's why we're the Champions and we've won the Cup,
We're Champions of Europe too, we've won them all,
We're Manchester United, the Kings of Football
