Images of Manchester United's planned three new kits ahead of the 2021/22 have apparently been leaked online.
There's a major change coming for the Premier League giants with Chevrolet - the main shirt sponsor for the past seven years - being replaced by German software firm TeamViewer.
Adidas are still the kit manufacturer, however, and the pictures shared by United Journal on Twitter show three shirts: the red home version, a light blue-and-white away jersey, plus a darker blue kit with yellow trim.
It's important to note that none of these have been officially announced as yet, so it's all TBC regarding the Old Trafford club's shirts.
However the early response to the simple, throwback kit designs - with three bold shoulder stripes - has been fairly positive online. (Although some reckoned it was wrong to see the Red Devils playing in two different shades of blue.)
Third one doesn't work because of the red on blue background but really love the home and away.- UtdResurgent (@UtdResurgent) April 28, 2021

Why the shirts are more towards the blue colour than red? Utd should be red. Ok I understand the awat kit but why the 3rd one is predominantly blue???????- Eshan (@EshanRaabea) April 29, 2021
Manchester City apparently had their home shirt leaked earlier this month, via Footy Headlines, and it apparently contains a tribute to Sergio Aguero and the injury-time goal he scored against QPR on the final day of the season, 10 years ago next summer.
Their crosstown rivals United will certainly be sporting a new main sponsor next season, after TeamViewer signed a deal reportedly worth a whopping £235 million over five years.
On announcing the deal, United's managing director Richard Arnold said in a statement: "We are tremendously proud to be establishing this partnership with one of the most exciting and dynamic global software companies.
"The ability to connect and collaborate has never been more important to the world and our community of 1.1 billion fans and followers.
"We are looking forward to working with TeamViewer to bring to life our vision for a partnership built on smarter ways of connecting people and businesses."
Smoothly handled, Arnold. And - if these really are the United shirts the team will be wearing next season - it's looking like a pretty slick start to the new partnership.
