Images of Manchester United’s new kit leaked
According to Footy Headlines (h/t MEN), the images of the Manchester United home kit for the 2020-21 season have been leaked online.
The source is a reliable site that has broken accurate leaks of kits in the past. The images appear to show next season’s designs as they would appear on the official Adidas website.
The designs are less prominent than the images that were leaked in March. United fans were unhappy with the design as it resembled a bus seat.
It appears that the feedback has played its part as the latest images show a simpler design.
The trademark three stripes make a come back at a prominent level on the home kit. The Adidas logo and the stripes are both white in colour with the Chevrolet logo. The automobile giants are entering the final year as the club’s official sponsor.
According to the report, Adidas could unveil the new kit before the return leg of United’s Europa League round of 16 clash against LASK on August 5. So far, there has been no indication of when United’s new strips will be released.
United qualified for the UEFA Champions League after defeating Leicester City last Sunday. This helped the club keep their lucrative £75million-a-year kit deal with Adidas.
The Red Devils risked missing out on £25million had they failed to do so. This money can potentially be used in the transfer market as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to take the club further next season.

United’s deal with Adidas is the second-highest in the Premier League. It is only bettered by Liverpool’s £80million-a-year deal with Nike.
Had Adidas been allowed to keep £25million of the sponsorship deal, United would have received less money than Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal.
