Manchester City have enjoyed a bit of an up and down campaign this season, but Pep Guardiola is sure to shake things up in the summer.

Plenty of the Citizens' players are the wrong side of 30 and while they currently sit in fourth place, meaning they would have Champions League football next season, they have been far from the title picture this term.

That's not good enough for today's Man City, nor is it good enough for a man like Guardiola.

The defence is likely to be the main point of investment this summer and the Etihad might see only John Stones survive the cull.

However, according to the good guys at Footy Headlines, City have a pretty tasty away kit lined up for next season.

The design of the kit itself will remain very close to the way the strips have been presented this year and will once again be sponsored by Etihad Airways and manufactured by Nike.

However, it's the colour of the kit that is most striking of all.

The away kit this season has been just a dark number with some dark red sleeves. Even the third kit is a mixture of orange and blue. But, next season, they are going purple.


As you can see from the image above, It's quite a striking purple with typical City blue lining.

From what we can tell, the shorts and socks of the City away uniform will both be claret with navy and white details.

Twitter account MCFCjustsaying showed an image of the kit in real life and it seems as while the kit isn't quite as striking, it still isn't the nicest!

Pep will have to hope the fans like it, but he had plenty of nice things to say about City's fanbase recently.

"Of course, when we lose in our job the managers sit here and we are killed, so in that terms [pressure is] everywhere," he said via Manchester Evening News.


"But in general, for example, we were out of the Champions League in Monaco, we played three tough games against Liverpool Arsenal and Chelsea and we didn’t win one game, and our game against Hull City our supporters clapped us, helped us and supported us.

"That doesn't happen in Italy or in Spain. "That's why I’m so so glad for the fans we have, because for the first time in my life I have experienced that."
