manchestereveningnews: Manchester United’s third kit for the 2020/21 campaign has apparently been leaked online.
FootyHeadlines have released images of the Adidas-made shirt, which is in a zebra print, ‘dazzle camo’ bold design.
It’s just one of a number of supposed leaked United kits that have surfaced on the internet in recent weeks. The 2020/21 campaign will be the last season in which United are using Chevrolet as the main sponsors of their jersey.
This black and white kit, with red trim, is likely to divide supporters. But it’s supposedly part of the plan for eye-catching designs for next season.

United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and managing director Richard Arnold gave an update on the search for a new shirt sponsor back in February.
“We’ve communicated previously that the shirt process is underway and ongoing,” said Arnold, speaking on an investors’ call.
“We’ve communicated previously that only at the point at which a deal is concluded, as you would expect, given its material information, we will announce that in the usual way. That hasn’t happened. And concurrently, we’ve also indicated that we won’t be providing running commentary on how that process and the associated negotiations are proceeding.
“So beyond speculation from the press, there is nothing further I can add in respect of that ongoing process.”
MEN Sport understands United are in talks with prospective new partners and are confident of securing a lucrative new deal.
