Recently a number of mocked up shirts for Manchester United’s big switch over to Adidas have been doing the rounds on social media, but now, fans can take what will probably be a definitive first look at the new strip.

While modelling the new shirt, a photograph of midfield star Ashley Young (looking rather sleepy) has been leaked somehow, showing him wearing the shirt ahead of its official release.
The record breaking deal between the club and the sportswear brand is the biggest in history, but will still come as a shock to fans who are so used to seeing them donning kits from main rivals, Nike.
The shirt itself harks back to an earlier time, as the shade of red is slightly lighter than we’ve seen in recent seasons, and while it is still quintessentially an Adidas product, aided by the famous three stripes on the shoulders, the focus is somewhat taken away by the oversized Chevrolet logo on the chest.
