Manchester United sponsor Chevrolet has provided a fleet of free cars to use but the players haven't driven them at all.

As main sponsor, Chevrolet is paying Manchester United £47 million each season and they also provide a fleet of free cars to use. Back in April they delivered 15 cars - mostly Corvettes and Camaros - but none of them have been used by the players who prefer to driver their own cars which among others include Range Rovers and a Porsche 911. The only exception is manager Louis van Gaal who drives a Chevrolet Captiva but it's his personal car.

A source within Manchester United said only the training ground staff is using the free cars while a Chevrolet spokesman "excused" the players by saying they are not obliged to use them as these are part of a "voluntary drive program."
