Manchester United's new kit is leaked online again

Manchester United's kit for the upcoming season has had more leaks this summer than most of the ancient paddling pools that have been given a rare outing across Britain over the last few days.

First, shirts started appearing in shops by mistake, then official posters were spotted in Hong Kong before Anthony Martial was forced to hastily delete a post on social media earlier this week that revealed what the Red Devils will be wearing during the 2016/17 campaign.

Just to make matters even worse for the Old Trafford outfit, Electronic Arts (EA) appear to have accidentally placed an image of Martial donning United's latest collection online.

On the same day EA announced the results to decide who will be the global cover star of FIFA 17, they made a massive blunder involving one of the leading contenders to feature in the voting process.

The image - which has already been taken down - was visible on the EA Sports website and as you can see from the Tweet below, clearly pictures the Man United star wearing a yet to be released version of the Red Devils kit.

It further proves those previous leaks were in fact very accurate and Martial's new uniform looks particularly slick with the two-toned style of the shirt.

Much like Real Madrid's, the iconic Adidas stripes run down the side of the jersey and United's main shirt sponsors Chevrolet remain as the centrepiece.

Although the leaked image reveals what Martial will look like from a frontal view, the back of his shirt will also be slightly different for the upcoming campaign.

Martial's No. 9 top has gone to new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic while the Frenchman has been given Ryan Giggs' legendary No.11 as the club announced their full list of squad numbers for 2016/17.

And his shirt number isn't the only thing Martial lost today, as Marco Reus pipped the 20-year-old, Eden Hazard and James Rodriguez to be voted the face of FIFA 17 when the EA game is released later this year.
