MANCHESTER UNITED have unveiled their new kit for the 2019/20 season – and there is a surprise face donning the strip.
United fans have had little to smile about over the last couple of months.
They were dumped out of the Champions League by Barcelona, before a woeful slump in form ended their top-four chances too.
United are also expected to lose several star players this summer.
David de Gea is linked with a move to PSG, while Paul Pogba is rumoured to be eyeing a move to Real Madrid.
However, pictures from the new kit launch may say otherwise.
The likes of Luke Shaw and Jesse Lingard were pictured wearing the brand new shirt.
But out front-and-centre was France midfielder Pogba.
The World Cup winner was involved in an altercation with a fan following United’s 2-0 loss at home to Cardiff on the final day of the season.
And many felt that could be the nail in the coffin for the 26-year-old’s Old Trafford future.
However, the new pictures may suggest otherwise.
Also caught on camera was De Gea, who was seen wearing the new goalkeeping kit, which is made in the same dark purple two-tone design worn by Peter Schmeichel.
The Spaniard has endured a nightmare end to the season, committing several howlers as United dropped several point unnecessarily.
And the general consensus is that the 28-year-old needs a fresh start after eight years with the Red Devils.
Made by Adidas, United’s new kit is draped in history.
The strip pays homage to the club’s treble winning season in 1998/99, when current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was a star player.
The crest has been redesigned to replicate the same one from that year, but is given a fresh twist by the black and gold stitching.
