Manchester United have launched a new partnership with music streaming service Deezer.

A campaign has today launched starring current and former players including Jesse Lingard, Paul Pogba, Morgan Schneiderlin, Ashley Young and Rio Ferdinand.

As part of the two-year deal, which sees Deezer become the club's official music partner, United fans will be able to access more than 43 million tracks and 40,000 pieces of broader audio content such as podcasts.

Fans can also expect to see player playlists, hear match day playlists when at Old Trafford and experience integration between the Manchester United website and Deezer apps.

Watch the players launch the partnership:

United's group MD Richard Arnold said: “Music and sport have the power to bring people together, something we experience first-hand with the appeal of football and the unique passion for Manchester United.

"As Deezer is also an innovator and an industry leader, we look forward to providing our fans around the world with a new way to interact with the Club they love through music and digital media.”

Deezer’s CEO, Hans-Holger Albrecht, added: "We are thrilled to be collaborating with one of the most recognised football teams in the world to give fans that are both hugely passionate about music and football access to compelling, entertaining and innovative content."
