Man United's 2017-18 away kit

Message for Real Madrid? Man United’s away kit launch & transfer implications

Man United’s 2017-18 away kit

A day after we brought you leaked pictures of Man United’s brand new away kit for 2017-18, the Red Devils have officially unveiled their second strip for next season.

The kit, made by Adidas, is black and grey, while the club employed Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Paul Pogba, David De Gea and Ander Herrera to model the new uniform.

Message for Real Madrid?

Many Man United fans reacted to the Man United kit release wondering if the Red Devils had sent out a transfer message to Real Madrid.

Recent months have seen non-stop rumours flow linking De Gea with a summer move from Old Trafford to the Santiago Bernabeu.

But by including De Gea in their graphic for their new kit, are United sending out a message that their Spanish keeper will remain at the club next season?

That could depend on whether Man United qualify fort the Champions League, which they can do via the top four in the Premier League or the Europa League.

As it stands, a second leg against Celta Vigo and likely final against Ajax in the Europa League, looks their best way into the Champions League next season.

Tweets on De Gea modelling the new Man United kit are below.
