Russia's Aeroflot has signed a five-year partnership deal under which it becomes Manchester United's "official carrier".

The UK soccer club, previously sponsored by Turkish Airlines, says the new accord "marks the club's first commercial venture in Russia - an expanding market it is keen to explore further, and where it has close to 18 million followers".

It adds: "Aeroflot will provide the English Premier League champions with strategic advice on travel for the team and club representatives."
