Yet more leaked pictures of Chelsea's new home kit for the upcoming season have emerged online today.

The Blues will have a new sponsor for the 2015/16 season, Yokohama rubber, after agreeing a £40 million-per-year deal with the Japanese firm earlier this year.

Now it seems the kit has been leaked before its official release, with one Instagram user uploading two pictures - and fans across the globe have already been expressing their delight.

The new shirt features red detailing on the cuffs and the neck, while the torso has a stripe motif. @TheChelseaWay also uploaded grainy images of a black third kit and white away kit.

Adidas have so far failed to provide Chelsea fans with an official launch date, although they have been telling fans that it should be 'soon'. The pictures are the first of many to have appeared online in recent months, with a picture similar to the one that appeared over the weekend surfacing back in April.

It seems as though Radamel Falcao is likely to be wearing the new strip come next season after it was reported that the Colombian had agreed terms with Chelsea, and that the club had a deal in place with Monaco.

The 29-year-old failed to impress during his season-long loan spell at Manchester United but is set to be given another chance to prove his worth in the Premier League by Jose Mourinho. 

Failure

Falcao was given another chance to impress last night for Colombia in their Copa America opener against Venezuela. 'El Tigre' fired a blank as his side slipped to a surprise 1-0 defeat.

While Mourinho refused to use Falcao by name, when quizzed about the former Porto forward he insisted that goals will only be part of the job for the forward he brings in to replace Didier Drogba, whose second spell in west London has come to an end.

'[Drogba is] a striker that was very experienced, who every minute was fantastic for us, even in the last 10 minutes to hold the ball, cool down emotionally the game. So we have to buy a striker because we want to have three strikers of a good level.'

Opinion

Chelsea are reaping the rewards of Falcao's poor season with Manchester United. They are getting him on the cheap - reports suggest he'll take a massive pay cut to complete the move - and his reputation has fallen to the point where he'll be considered a squad player and have to either like it or lump it.

If he comes good then Mourinho is a transfer genius with three world class strikers at his disposal. If it doesn't then he's lost very little and his search for another forward will begin in 12 months time.

Do you think Chelsea should be allowed to have red on their new shirt?
