The start of the new season is four months away, but that has not stopped the rumour mill circulating on the internet with leaked images of new shirts for next season.

From Manchester United to England, pictures have already been doing the round on possible strips for the new campaign.

One new kit has been a controversial choice. For the first time in their 115 year history, Barcelona will wear a hooped kit. A decision that has caused outrage in Spain.

In a poll in Spanish newspaper Sport, 78 per cent of fans said they did not like the kit and did not want it to be introduced next season.

While Catalan newspaper Diario Sport have revealed that an inside source at the club claims president Josep Maria Bartomeu has already approved the design, after meeting with sports manufacturing giants Nike at a secret meeting at the Nou Camp on Monday.

Running the headline 'Revolution in the new shirt', the report states: "It is an important development because throughout history [the stripes] had been vertical, a line diagonally from one colour or even, on occasion, a single horizontal strip but no time were four bars horizontally... "The company that equips FC Barcelona needed an innovative design because sales are down when the design is very similar to the previous year."
