Arsenal have also raised their shirt price from £70 to £80

Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham fans will all have to fork out an eye-watering £80 for their replica shirts.

United and the Gunners have raised their respective prices from £70, while Spurs charged £75 last year.

The price keeps rising if fans want to add Prem sleeve badges and a name and number – with these add-ons taking each total cost to £100.

Prem clubs are paid lucrative sums by their kit manufacturers.

Chelsea agreed a staggering 15-year, £900million deal with Nike in 2016.

While Man United signed a ten-year, £750m contract with Adidas beginning in 2015.

In addition to these huge lump sums, Prem teams do still make some money from each individual sale.

According to the Mail, German sports marketing expert Dr Peter Rohlmann has revealed the break down of each £80 sum.

Their report claims that from an £80 shirt, clubs receive a £4.80 licensing fee.

The retailer then gets £26.40 – meaning if the shirt is bought directly from the club, this money goes to them.

Manufacturers, Adidas in Man United and Arsenal’s case, then get £23.47.

Of the rest, £13.33 goes toward VAT, while £1.60 goes to local distribution and £2.40 on marketing.

Newcastle and Aston Villa have risen theirs to £70 from £65, with Everton hiking their shirt prices from £60 to £65.
