For Manchester United fans, the wait is finally over. No, you haven't signed Paul Pogba but the first images of the kit the French midfielder may be playing in have been released.

With the 2016/17 season little under a month away, anticipation regarding Manchester United's new home kit was building.

Now, it has finally been unveiled, featuring two tones of red separated by a strip of hexagons followed by the iconic three stripes of Adidas down the side.

Apparently, this two shades of red is designed to pay homage to the club's roots. Formerly known as Newton Heath, they originally rose to fame wearing a shirt with yellow and green halves.

The shorts and socks are far more modern with the former being white with a red trim and the latter black with a red trim.

The release, which took place in Shanghai during Manchester United's pre-season tour, also feature this slick video:

While promoters will be glad to release the kit in the emerging market of China, they would have been disappointed to have seen the team thrashed by Borussia Dortmund just 18 hours prior to it.

The price

Manchester United fans hoping to get 'Ibrahimovic' or even 'Pogba' on the back of their shirts will have to have plenty of spare wonga lying around.

The kit is priced at £60 on Manchester United's official store and £65 for the long-sleeved version. Add a name and Premier League badges to that (you can't have Europa League badges) and you've got a £76.95 bill.

If you're into that full kit kind of thing, the shorts will cost you another £30 while the socks are £13, bringing the total cost the £119.95. Woof.

If you're lucky enough to be a child or the size of a child, you can save some money as the full child's kit cost £88.

So how much is your fandom worth?
