Manchester United's black third strip for the new season has been put on sale - and it comes with a slightly odd looking pair of shorts.

The official launch of the new adidas United home kit last Friday was preceded by plenty of leaks on social media sites, while some shops also put the jersey on sale before its official release date.

That move was described as 'a mistake' at the time, the latest early release has led many to suggest the leaks are planned to promote the kit to eager United fans.

Images of the third kit started filtering through on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, with a sports shop in Duabi seemingly the first to stock the shirt.

There can be few complaints about the stylish black jersey with orange trim, but what do you make of those black and white shorts?

No doubt United fans will snap up this kit when it goes on sale, but you may need to board a plane to pick it up as a sports shop in Dubai seems to be the only place selling it right now.
