Manchester United Reportedly Set To Have Black And White Striped Kit Next Season
Manchester United could be playing in a white and black striped Juventus style kit for one of their away kits next season according to reports.
The Red Devils might be closer to playing like Grimsby Town than Juventus right now but according to the Sun the Premier League side could be playing in black and white stripes next season, no matter who they're playing like.
Sources have told the newspaper that one of United's change kits, away or third kit, will be a white and black striped kit, although no one from Adidas would comment on the speculation.
There was suggestion that the kit United would wear had been previously rejected by the Serie A champions but the German kit manufacturer did confirm that handing a rejected design to the next team wasn't in their processes.
As well as their current home kit, which is meant to be a throwback to their 1999 Champions League victory on the 20th anniversary of the final, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team have a gold snakeskin away kit and black third kit.
Right now though it doesn't really matter what clothes they're wearing United look an absolute shell of their former selves and having a Juventus inspired kit isn't likely to inspire them to go on a similar run of eight league titles in-a-row like the Italians.
The Old Lady's current home kit caused quite a stir when it was first revealed earlier this year. Adidas essentially got rid of the traditional stripes and left Maurizio Sarri's side with one half white and one half black, with a red stripe down the middle.
It's also not the first time in recent years that Juve's aesthetic has caused controversy as the change of badge in January 2017 left fans bemoaning modern football.
In the 1978/79 season United did wear a similar white away kit to the one that has been suggested with two thin black stripes down the 'pocket' of the shirt.
That season United finished 9th in the top tier and the way they've started this season it wouldn't be that much of a surprise to find them right back there again.
