Fresh images of Manchester United's new away kit for the 2020/21 campaign have been leaked online ahead of its official unveiling.
The release was set for the end of May, with the away strip reportedly the first of the three new kits to hit the shops. However, that has been put back due to the delayed conclusion of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.
The fresh 'legacy green' strip, is a switch away from the traditional colours of a United away jersey and has somewhat drifted away from the 'savannah toned' look for this season's iteration.
A similarity between the two, however, is the subtle pattern on both kits. The leak, provided by the ever-reliable Footy Headlines, shows an almost snakeskin-esque design on the new 'legacy green' strip, following on from the intricate patterned design that drew inspiration from the mosaics around northern Manchester on the 'savannah' away strip.
And despite previous leaked images suggesting kit makers were toying with colouring the club crest and Adidas logo orange, the latest leak shows they've stuck with white. Chevrolet, meanwhile, will continue their partnership with the club and their logo dominates the centre of the shirt.
The shorts and socks which complete the away kit, are believed to be a darker green, almost grey colour, and the overall look gives off a very military feel.

Nevertheless, the recent leak comes after Barcelona apparently accidentally showed off the Red Devils' fresh home kit for next season when they were simulating a match on Pro Evolution Soccer 20 between the two sides.
Barça are sponsored by the Konami game and the thumbnail for the YouTube-staged match showed Paul Pogba alongside Lionel Messi.
However, the midfielder appeared to be wearing United’s 2020/21 strip, which apparently features a white collar and white trim on the arms, rather than their current kit.
The kit is predominantly red but features an unusual and unique pattern of yellow and black stripes on the front, perhaps an ode to the vintage 1992 home strip used by Adidas.
The home strip was set for a July release.
