Barcelona's new kit 'leaked online'


According to pictures circling on social media, the Catalan club are set to divert from their traditional shirt design, by donning a checked pattern in their famous blue and red colours.

Leaked photos have emerged on popular social media platform 'Twitter', that supposedly show the new look Barcelona kit for the 2019-2020 season.

According to the image of both the home shirt and a potential design for next season's away strip; Barcelona have opted to adapt their famous red and blue striped design, and have also explored a retro theme for the away jersey.

Current central midfielder Ivan Rakitic should already be familiar with playing in a chequered shirt; his country Croatia don a red and white version of the design for their home international fixtures.

The away kit design, yellow in colour with a diagonal claret and blue stripe across the middle, is more in keeping with the traditions of the club. The idea is thought to be a nod to the change kit worn by the stars of the club in the 1970's.

The likes of Johan Cruyff donned a very similar shirt during that era in the club's history, albeit with the diagonal sash resting on the opposite side.

Barcelona's fans have become used to unconventional designs in recent years; and given that the colour schemes are still in keeping with the club's history, there should not be too many unsatisfied supporters should this design be proved legitimate.
