As we draw closer to the end of the season, the internet is rife with rumours about what the top clubs in Europe will be looking like next season – and that talk isn’t strictly related to transfers.
Kit leaks are aplenty at this time of year, so it’s time to have a look at the latest news for some of the top clubs across Europe.
One thing we can be certain of is that
The home kit is likely to be a classic red shirt with white sleeves, featuring the trademark adidas three stripes and the away shirt will be a spin on the classic ‘bruised banana’ design the club used between
Chelsea are continuing with Nike next season and rumours are suggesting that there could be a slight twist on the standard blue home jersey, with a graphic print of Stamford Bridge featuring on the front. However, the home kit shorts are the only thing to have been leaked just yet.
New Balance have been able to keep everything on the down low so far, meaning Liverpool fans will have to wait a little longer to see what’s in store.
Manchester City ended their deal with Nike and signed with Puma earlier this season.
There’s no news over the specific design of the home shirt, but the away shirt is set to be black with peach accents and the third shirt will be yellow, also accompanied by peach accents.
One of the first kits to be leaked, Manchester United’s adidas home kit for the 2019/20 season has been revealed.
Newcastle’s kits for next season have also been leaked.
In a slight twist, the usual black and whites stripes of the home kit are accompanied by
No design leaks for Tottenham, but Nike are said to be doing away with the divisive gradient design which left some supporters very underwhelmed last season.
The home shirt will be a classic white design, whilst the away and third shirts are set to be dark blue and light blue respectively.
Watford pulled an April Fool’s prank on supporters with a bizarre diamond design for next season’s home kit, but the design of the actual kit the Hornets will be sporting has also been leaked.
Keeping with the yellow and black design, the adidas design will feature a half and half design instead of last season’s stripes.
Nike’s experimental Atletico kits of the past two seasons are set to be cast aside as they revert back to a more straightforward design next season.
The leaked home shirt returns to simple red and white stripes, whilst the away shirt is set to be black with red accents and third shirt light blue with navy accents.
In potentially the biggest twist yet, Nike are daring to do away with Barcelona’s traditional stripes in favour of a chequered design, not too dissimilar from Croatia’s national shirt.
The first leaks of Barcelona’s 2019/20 kit features the traditional red and blue colours in checkers instead of stripers, coupled with solid blue sleeves. The away kit is equally as intriguing, as it features a red and blue sash across a yellow shirt, inspired by the iconic kit of the 1970’s.

adidas seem to have recognised that Real Madrid look pretty sharp when they take to the field in white and gold.
Los Blancos look set to be sporting a classy white shirt with gold accents next season, similar to the 2011/12 kit. The big difference between the two kits will be the use of a crew neck cut on the updated version. The away and third kits will be navy and mint green respectively.
Puma haven’t taken too much of a risk when it comes to Milan’s kit design, keeping it plain and simple with thin red and black stripes for the home variation.
The away shirt will be white and black and red accents on either shoulder and the third kit is black with a subtle red graphic printed on the front.
Nike aren’t willing to change too much when it comes to Inter’s
The home shirt will of course feature black and blue vertical stripes, but there will be a strip of diagonal stripes in the area around the sponsor. The away kit will be mint and gold, whilst the third kit will be black and yellow.
Milan and Inter are sticking to their traditional stripes, but adidas aren’t going down the same route with Juventus.
I Bianconeri are going to be wearing a half and half design (not all that dissimilar to Watford’s home shirt) with gold logos. The away kit will be white and red and the third kit will be blue.
Not too much to talk about for Bayern Munich, other than a leak of their third kit.
No designs to discuss, but the kit is set to be in the colours of navy, red and grey.
Borussia Dortmund’s kits have been subject to variation over the past few years, but Puma are keeping it simple this time around.
The home shirt will be yellow with black shoulders, but the cup kit (for use in the Champions League) will feature a striking graphic across the chest and sleeves which draws inspiration from the roof design of the Signal Iduna Park.
