United stars have been told they can only drive supplied Chevrolet cars to and from training as part of the club’s £47m sponsorship deal with the American brand, according to The Mirror.
The report suggests Chevrolet were unhappy that some of the club’s biggest players turned down free cars in order to continue driving their own mega-expensive sports cars.
It is believed around 15 cars were transported to Old Trafford, however only the club’s ground staff were willing to drive them.
“It was pretty embarrassing when they motor firm had handed over all these free cars and no one wanted to drive them,” a source said.
“Now the lads have been asked to take them for a spin every now and again so they get pictured behind the wheel of a Chevy.
“They might not be Porsches but they are lovely cards and the average United fan would kill for a free motor. So far stars such as David De Gea, Jonny Evans, Juan Mata and Antonio Valencia have been spotted driving the cars to the training ground.”
United effectively secured its Champions League qualification with a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday, with Liverpool only managing a draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge the following day.
The Red Devils hold a six-point advantage over Brendan Rodgers’ side and a far superior goal difference.
