Barcelona's Home Shirt For Next Season Has Already Been Leaked
Barcelona's kit for the 2020/2021 season has already been leaked.
The season has barely kicked off but a report from Catalan outlet SPORT has already surfaced showing what Lionel Messi and co could be wearing next season.

It's a very lovely design.
The above tweet translates to,
"The design that we will see for the next Barcelona shirt. There may be some different things (neck, cuffs), but it is confirmed that the stripes will have that style."
The shirt looks to be a return to tradition for Barcelona after having a chequered pattern on their shirt this season.
Interestingly, SPORT predicted the chequered pattern this time last year so the striped kit will likely be close to the final design.
The rumoured new shirt does look smart with the yellow collar reminiscent of the 2012/2013 season when the late Tito Vilanova was in charge.

The new kit is inspired by what Barça wore a century ago, with Paulino Alcántara as scorer and star of that team. That season, 1919-20 qualified as the first 'Golden Age' of FC Barcelona. [sport] pic.twitter.com/YuBA9bqGGM
The current home kit caused controversy when it first launched with many fans voicing their anger at the lack of stripes.
However, Nike's strips do look very smart in motion especially the third kit.
With the retro Nike logo in the corner the turquoise effort has gone down a treat with many.

Barca have been partnered with Nike for over two decades now and the swoosh has become synonymous with many of the games legendary players over the years.
There's still plenty of work for Ernesto Valverde's men to do in this season's kit first however.
With a front three of Griezmann, Suarez and Messi, they could challenge for all of the top trophies this season.
