LONDON, Apr 3 (Reuters) Entertainment company Mansion pulled out of a 70 million pound sponsorship talks with English premier league soccer club Manchester United today.

In a statement Mansion said that United, one of the world's richest soccer clubs, had told it at the weekend that another company had been simultaneously agreeing a deal with the club.

''We are very disappointed at the manner in which Manchester United has concluded these contract negotiations and are very surprised that the discussions were terminated at this late stage, in what we consider to be an unprofessional manner,'' Mansion's chief operating officer David Kinsman said.

There was no immediate comment from United.

Mansion runs an international casino, sports exchange and sports book business and said the deal with United would have been worth 65-70 million pounds over four years.
