Barcelona's leaked third shirt met with divided fan reaction
The Catalan giants have already released their home and away shirt
Barcelona have already released two stunning kits in preparation for next season, and supporters of the Catalan giants are patiently waiting to see what the official third shirt will look like.
The LaLiga club have taken a slightly different approach with their home jersey, opting for a blue design on the shoulders, accompanied by the infamous red and blue stripes.

If their home shirt is nice, then the club's away shirt is stunning. Barcelona went for a design inspired by the 1992 Olympic Games - and it certainly hasn't disappointed. The gold design is simply wonderful.
