Manchester United will have a new kit producer next season as Adidas begins the first year of their sponsorship.
Worth £75m a year to Man United, it is the biggest deal ever of its kind in the history of football and will help the club to continue having fantastic financial muscle in the transfer market.
As is always the case over the course of a season, potential kits are leaked across the internet and one in particular has got the fans talking having been spread across social media having been created by a fan.
Sporting traditional shoulder stripes and some slightly unusual stripes down the sides of the top, it’s a world away from the plain Nike jerseys which Man United fans have become accustomed to over the years.
What do you think of it?
Here’s what a few fans had to say about it:

Ideally, Adidas will bring out a kit which is more in line of the old 1980s shirts which fans loved so much but that might just be wishful thinking.
