Manchester United and Adidas have launched the new home kit inspired by the club’s formative years.

The Red Devils unveiled the kit in China, where they are currently on their pre-season tour.

“In the second year of the partnership with Manchester United, Adidas has taken cues from the Club’s illustrious history, with a two tone red split design evoking the two-tone Newton Heath kit of 1878,” the club said in a statement, according to SkySports.

Most of the first team squad members were there to pose in the new kit, including Juan Mata, David de Gea and Daley Blind, however one notable absentee was star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Check out footage of the kit launch in the video below.
