Every year, Manchester United’s kit release is a source of great anticipation and excitement from fans, and this year it has come early through a leak on TikTok.
An ASOS model, who happens to be a big Arsenal supporter, released a TikTok to his followers expressing his dismay at having to rock the brand new United shirt whilst modelling for the fashion company.
A video sharing the TikTok was posted on Twitter, and has quickly gone viral having all but confirmed what the rumoured new kit would be like.

The defining feature of this kit is the collar, white with red and black zigzags, which feels like a throwback to some historic kits gone by.
The crest around the badge, similar to the 2019/20 kit, only works to continue this retro vibe.
Adidas go with the colour black for the three shoulder stripes, where usually they go white on United kits.
The jersey is modernised by the debut of DXC Technology, an American information technology firm, as the club’s new sleeve sponsor, replacing Kohler.
Remote access and remote control computer software TeamViewer enters its second year as the club’s main kit sponsor, maintaining a technological theme amongst the sponsors.
This morning it was made public that Manchester United PLC’s share price had fallen to a record low 11.07 USD at the close of trading yesterday, a fall of almost 50% from October 2021 that has caused the total value of the club to fall by 1.3 billion.
Whilst largely down to wider economic events at present, with the entire stock market suffering in recent days, this is not a good sign for United and the official release of the new home kit on sale to fans, as well as the away and third kits, will be critical to the club’s economic recovery following this steep drop.
The kit really does feel like a clash of eras, with the odes to the past meeting the new-age technology sponsors.
Whilst nothing is guaranteed, United fans could look at it as a sign that the old times can return in the near future.
The Red Devils have not been successful for many years now, and the return to this historic style could ignite a desire to return to the days of old where United were the best of the best.
