Earlier, we have brought you a Nike picture, similar to that used for the Arsenal away shirt launch, of the new Manchester United home shirt. However, the picture was too small to notice the details. A new picture has appeared on the internet showing Man Utd superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in the 2009/11 shirt, and it is bigger than the previous one. There is a high possibility, almost certainty, that this shirt will be the one that the Champions League runners-up will be wearing at Old Trafford next season, where they will be bidding to retain the Premier League and win the Champions League.
Whilst the present shirt has most of the details on the back, with the vertical white stripes, it seems that the new shirt will have the details on the front. In this picture, showing Ronaldo in a red shirt, we can see that it will have a black circular collar and a black chevron across the chest. Also, the Man Utd crest will be placed on a black background, and the Nike Swoosh will be white on the right hand side of the black chevron.
However, another image appeared on the internet, which looks authentic, showing that the shirt will have a white collar and white sleeve ends. The badges of the Premier League are gold, as the Red Devils are the reigning champions of England. We will have to wait and see which of these two possibilities will be the actual thing, but the thing that is for certain is that the new shirt will have a black chevron across the chest.
