Anthony Martial accidentally leaks Manchester United’s new 2016/17 home kit

Anthony Martial has leaked the new Manchester United home kit for the 2016/17 season.

The blue away shirt is already available to buy, and was worn by the Man United side in their 2-0 win over Wigan on Saturday.

However, United’s new home strip doesn’t go on sale until July 23, although various stores across the world have been offloading the shirt early.

The Frenchman tweeted a picture of himself at an EA Sports photoshoot, wearing what appears to be the new home strip the next season.

Martial quickly deleted the post soon after, probably at the request of the club’s PR department, but the image had already been saved and circulated by thousands of people.

Seeing Martial wearing the new United strip somewhat heightens the level of anticipation amongst supporters ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

Following a groundbreaking first year, next year promises to be a defining passage in the youngster’s career, who will be accompanied this time around by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, a supreme mentor, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, a serial chance creator. If the Martial can take advantage of both his own talent and the skill of those around him, an incredible season lies ahead for the Frenchman.
