A new Manchester United retro kit, which leaked this past January, is now showing up for sale online. The Adidas China website was the first to make the shirt available, for a price under £60. It is not available in the United Kingdom yet, or in Europe except for one Scandinavian store, but it is expected that the jersey will become available for purchase in the next few days.
When the kit finally does get put on the additional markets, it might be more expensive too.
According to Footy Headlines: “The Adidas Man Utd 2018 retro jersey is set to be officially launched in the coming days for EUR 150 and GBP 130 in Europe and the UK, respectively.”

It’s pretty sharp, huh? The strip is modeled after the 1950s and 1960s Manchester United kits, and it has one major obvious distinct advantage- no branding. If you want to wear a United shirt without a corporate logo on it (i.e. you don’t feel like doing free advertising for some corporation) then the retro kit is probably the one for you.
