An image of Ashley Young wearing what appears to be Manchester United's home kit for the upcoming 2015/16 season has been leaked online.

Next season's shirt will be the first made by German sportswear giant Adidas since they announced a world record £750 million sponsorship deal with the Red Devils last year and rumours have been rife about how the strip will look.

Previous images have emerged on the web but the latest picture appears to be taken from a promotional campaign starring Young and is seemingly the real deal. The red kit features Adidas' iconic white stripes on the sleeve as well as a white cuff and a v-neck collar. American car firm Chevrolet sponsor the shirt once more.

Manchester United's current deal with Nike expires at the end of July, which means the new kit launch isn't likely to happen until the start of August. The away and third kits are likely to be launched at a later date.

The deal with Adidas is the largest in football history and covers the next ten years. The £75 million-per-year fee is a huge increase on the deal with Nike, which is said to have been worth just shy of £25 million-per-year.

The massive deal is likely to bankroll a huge spending spree for Manchester United this summer as they look to add to their squad having qualified for the Champions League.

Money

Boss Louis van Gaal splashed in excess of £150 million last summer on a host of new players last year and has been linked with a move for the likes of Paul Pogba, Gareth Bale and Bastian Schweinsteiger.
