Manchester United have unveiled their new home shirt for the 2019/20 season.

The design pays homage to United’s treble-winning 1998/1999 campaign, in which they became the first team to win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

The treble was clinched with Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s late goals in the final against Bayern Munich.

And the new shirt acknowledges the minutes in which those goals were scored, with 90+1 and 90+3 printed on the sleeves.

Meanwhile, the dates of the FA Cup final win against Newcastle United and crucial league win against Tottenham are displayed along the bottom of the shirt.

Another new feature is the commemorative crest, which is inspired by the shield seen on the shirts from the 1998/99 season.

Supporters won’t have to wait too long to see the new shirt, although it won’t be the first team players wearing it. It will be worn in the Treble Reunion match, featuring the likes of David Beckham, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville, on May 26.

'Authentic' shirt costs £100

The first team will then wear it when they face Leeds United in Perth on July 17.

There’s no doubt that many United supporters will be wearing the new shirt for that game - but it will set them back a fair whack.

Two versions of the shirt are available on the adidas store website. One is the ‘authentic’ kit, which costs an eye-watering £99.95 - with £10 extra for any personalisation.

The cheaper version of the kit is available for £64.95, with the same added cost for any personalisation.

An authentic jersey isn’t available in children’s sizes, but the replica will cost £49.95.

A mini kit for five to six years olds, which includes shorts and socks, is priced over £57.95.

Better start saving, United fans…
