Pictures have emerged of Manchester United’s new home kit for the 2016/17 season ahead of its official release.
Man United recently launched their new away kit, which is predominantly blue with red details. Similar pictures emerged on Twitter weeks before that strip was unveiled.
And it appears that the same has happened to the home kit. Pictures, and even a video, have surfaced online showing the kit in its full glory. The shirt has a Newton Heath label on the inside, while it appears that the front has a two-tone colour scheme. Adidas’ three stripes are located on the ribcage area:

Adidas have paid £750m to United over 10 years for the privilege to manufacture their shirts and the deal seems to be working as there were record sales last summer.
But the German company will certainly be hoping that performances improve on the pitch as United have been awful recently.
The 3-2 defeat against West Ham United last time out left United relying on Swansea City to beat Manchester City on the final day of the Premier League season if they are to stand any chance of securing a top four finish.
