Manchester United have unveiled their new adidas home kit and it is reminiscent of their shirts of the 1980s.

It is the first strip made by the German sportswear manufacturer since they signed a 10-year partnership with the Barclays Premier League giants.

The shirt cost £60 from the club's official online megastore on Saturday, with a kids' shirt priced at £50. A baby kit was £35.

adidas designer Inigo Turner said in a statement on the club website: "We have aimed to break expectations by reengineering simple but impactful design features such as the classic v-neck collar and the iconic three-stripe detailing down the arms as our commitment to giving Manchester United a truly ground-breaking kit for the 2015/16 season."

The kit, launched under the slogan 'Break Expectations', also features a graphic design on the hem of the shirt taken from the 1990 jersey worn by Ryan Giggs in his debut season.
