Most Manchester United fans will be hoping for this season to end already. The hope and promise of an FA Cup title and a Champions League semi-finals spot that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s early games placed in the heart of supporters were crushed.

Now, with their recent 1-1 draw to Chelsea, even Champions League football for next season seems all but removed for the Red Devils.

The Norwegian has already expressed that he can’t wait for the pre-season to commence, and reports are already suggesting that the club will spend tremendously in a bid to overhaul their roster.

In the midst of all this end-of-the-season drama, one small mistake has given the world a peek into the next campaign already.

Manchester United’s home kit for the 2019/20 season was leaked for a bit by Sports Direct, who seemed to have put it on sale online. The kit was removed momentarily after the gaffe.

This isn’t the first time that a kit has been leaked accidentally, and one does wonder whether such events are mere mistakes or well-orchestrated publicity stunts to create hype.

The kit in question seemed to meet most of the rumors that were doing the rounds over the past few weeks. The standout features of the jersey appear to pay tribute to the 1998/1999 Treble success of the club.

The kit is believed to have the dates during which the club won the Premier League, the FA Cup, and the Champions League respectively during that iconic season.

In fact, the club’s badge is seen enshrined in the very same crest and shape that was prominent on the kits of their 1998-2000 European shirts.

Further, it was also revealed that the Red Devils would return to wearing white shorts at home, after this season broke a long tradition and saw the lads sport black at Old Trafford.
