Man United have released their third kit ahead of the upcoming season with Adidas taking inspiration from over a century of stripe designs

Manchester United have released a vibrant new third kit ahead of the new Premier League season.

The Red Devils kick-off their season with a home game against Crystal Palace on September 19.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have been afforded an extend break and begin their campaign a week later than the rest of the league.

And Adidas have delved through the archives and taken inspiration from a host of former strips to create their latest kit.

The club’s three traditional colours – red, white and black – have been compiled together in an eye-catching stripe design.

White shorts and white socks will accompany the kit.

United’s stripe designs can be traced back to the club’s first year at Old Trafford more than a century ago.

Back then they wore a classic blue and white striped shirt as their alternative kit and this year’s design has the words “110 years of stripes” stitched into the collar.

The Red Devils have already released their home and away kits for the upcoming season.

Traditional red remains their home colour while the away kit is a predominantly black design.

New signing Donny van de Beek, who arrived for £39m from Ajax last week, will don the new kit along with his team-mates.

One man who fans will hope to see in the new colours is Jadon Sancho.

United have long targeted the Borussia Dortmund forward but the deal is in jeopardy with the German side playing hardball.

They made it clear to the Old Trafford chiefs that any deal had to be completed by a date, that has now passed, so that they knew whether Sancho could be involved in their pre-season preparations.
