Is this Manchester United’s new away shirt for the 2011-12 season? It could very well be.

The leaked photo features a blue shirt with hoops, designed by Nike. The inside top of the shirt has the words “Manchester United” printed on it.

The new Man Utd away shirt design is a departure for Manchester United. Blue away shirts have been worn by Manchester United throughout most of the history of the club. But they haven’t had a blue away shirt before with such distinct hoops. The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the above picture was Inter Milan. Sure, Inter wears blue stripes, not blue hoops. But this away shirt definitely evokes Inter more than United in my opinion.
