Is this Manchester United’s third shirt for the 2013-14 season?
Probably not, but there is substance to the rumor that Manchester United may be preparing to launch a new third shirt this summer that will be gold. According to the website Football Shirts, Nike’s official UK Twitter account said that United will have a new third this upcoming season, but that tweet was quickly deleted by Nike.
While the above pictured shirt looks like an Asian knock-off, a gold shirt for United makes sense to celebrate their 20th top flight title. Plus, United haven’t listed a third shirt on their official club shop website, so it’s possible that United may choose to launch a new shirt instead of making last season’s away shirt this season’s third jersey.
