Manchester United new home shirt leaked on web

Images have surfaced on the web claiming to be of Manchester United's new home kit for next season.

As of next term the Red Devils will drop sponsors Nike and they will be replaced by Adidas - and if these images are to be believed then the German manufacturer have gone all out to make an impact.


The new Manchester United kit will purportedly feature the iconic Adidas stripes on the sleeves, but from there it's all change. The kit has white vented panels on the side, a black v-neck collar, and black, red and white finish on the short sleeves.

The kit is likely to divide opinion amongst Manchester United fans who have had to put up with plenty of new strips in recent years, and not all have been well received. It seems as though some fans have already started to have their say.


One said: "The leaked Man United kit for 14/15 looks hideous..Always favoured Nike kits.The only nice Red kit Adidas have produced is Benfica."

Another added: "Just seen a rumoured picture of Man Utd's first kit under new deal with Adiddas for next season. In one word - eyesore! #BadKit"


Of course there is no way of knowing whether the image is fake, and Manchester United have not made any comment on the strip as yet.

The 2012/13 Premier League champions penned a record £750 million sponsorship deal with Adidas last year which will last ten years. It brings to an end Nike's association with Manchester United which has lasted 13 years.


That puts it well above Real Madrid's deal with Adidas, which is worth £31 million and was previously the biggest shirt sponsorship deal ever. However there were reports soon after that Adidas would cut the £750 million fee by £20 million-per-year if Manchester United fail to qualify for the Champions League this season.

They look well on course to do just that however. So far boss Louis van Gaal has guided them into the top four in the Premier League after 21 games, although they lost their last outing against rivals Southampton, who moved up to third. Manchester United take on QPR in their next Premier League fixture.
