Manchester United are just about all-set to usher in a new era under ‘no bullsh*t’ boss Louis Van Gaal. The Dutch manager is ready to take the Red Devils back to the top of the Premier League table and that too, in style. According to the Daily Mail, Wayne Rooney and Co. will be donning new threads on the pitch this season.
If the latest reports to be believed, leaked images of the new Manchester United jersey show a new club sponsor. The ‘AON’ badge that had become synonymous with the 13-time Premier League Champions is set to be replaced by American automotive giant Chevrolet’s iconic logo.
Fans were initially teased with a ‘sneak peak’ of the jersey, but that’s since been shot-to-shit since the pictures were leaked. Chevrolet makes its mark on the iconic red t-shirt as part of a record £53 million agreement with the American Glazer family, who own the English club.
The shirt’s collar and sleeves feature a black and white striped element and the back of the neck has a small-sized facet of the black devil from the United logo. New signings like Athletic Bilbao’s Anders Herrera and Southampton’s Luke Shaw will be making their Man United debuts in the all-new jersey. The jerseys will continue to be manufactured by global sportswear giant Nike.
According to the club’s official Instagram account, Old Trafford is also in line for a makeover. The ‘Theater of Dreams’ will be renovated with new grass renewing title hopes amongst home fans, after a dismal season under former manager David Moyes.
