These latest leaks follow the uncovering of a delightful Manchester United retro shirt

Retro shirts are one of the greatest trends to have swept football and Adidas appear set to shower us with a collection of new designs based on that classic style we all know and love.

Arsenal, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester United are the five clubs featured in the latest designs, leaked by ahead of their release, speculated for between March 2019 and the start of the 2019/20 campaign.

The Gunners’ kit combines the classic yellow and navy blue colour scheme worn across several of the club’s most successful seasons, including the double-winning 1971 campaign and the last day title triumph of 1989. That kit featured three stripes across the shoulder and this offering includes that element across the chest.

A similar design is seen in the Bayern Munich shirt, combining red and dark blue to hark back to their famous 1997-99 home kit.

The faded pinstripes running down the length of the kit are a key feature in the design, and make for the striking Real Madrid version. This makes the most of the iconic all-white strip with golden emblems for that true Galactico feel.

Previously, Manchester United and Juventus kits were leaked with the Red Devils’ version similar to Real’s, combining a ‘real red’ body with white collars and emblems to help you feel as though you’ve just stabbed home Teddy Sheringham’s flick-on in the 93rd minute at the Camp Nou.

For Juventus, Adidas have gone for the three stripes across the chest effect in black and white. also believe a variation for Brazilian club Flamengo is likely to join the upcoming collection.

In summary: we want them all.
