Premier League giants Manchester United’s new home kit for the upcoming 2017/18 season appears to have been leaked online.
United had signed a decade long association with leading sports brand Adidas in 2015, and are now in the third year of their £750m decade-long deal with the German sportswear giants.
As the leaked kit reveals that there appears to be the usual three Adidas stripes returning on the shoulders. Meanwhile the sleeves feature white and black trim, along with a two button round collar, which was missing last season in the two-red dimensional red colored kit.

Earlier, United revealed their Away kit in May, as they are set to return to black with a bold graphic pattern. The strip is ‘inspired by 92’ – using the same fleck design the club sported for two years in the early 90s. They also wore the same in the 1992 League Cup final.
If the leaked Red kit turns out to be the real one, then Jose Mourinho’ men will be wearing those shirts for the first time when they embark on their pre-season tour to the United States. The MU Tour kicks off with a friendly against MLS outfit LA Galaxy at the StubHub Center, on July 15.
