Adidas, who is the current kit partner of Manchester United have finally released the new home kit.
The German sportswear firm had launched last season’s home jersey in Shanghai during United’s pre-season tour of China and have unveiled their latest effort after images of the official photoshoot leaked online.

United said: “The latest home shirt features a minimalist, sophisticated design which pays homage to some of the classic kits from the past, at the same time as being at the forefront of technical sportswear design with technical, breathable fabrics and mesh engineering.
“The kit features an all-new button-up collar offering an elegant and contemporary design, the adidas three stripes in white on the shoulders and red, white and black sleeves to represent the colours of the flags seen on match days at Old Trafford.”

Adidas had earlier released images of United’s black away kit in May and a third-choice alternate kit is also designed for the upcoming campaign. United players will don their new Adidas gear when they return to training at Carrington this weekend.
In case you did not know, Adidas were United’s kit partners between 1980 and 1992. Adidas was replaced by Umbro in 1992, who was later replaced after 10 years of its association with United by Nike.
Adidas signed a £750m deal to make United’s kits over the next 10 years.
