Adidas have got their tweeting boots on to tell the world that the new Man United away shirt went now on sale this morning.

The Blue strip was launched using photos of four current players posing in it – David de Gea, Juan Mata, Ashley Young and Luke Shaw.
Mata, Young and Shaw opted for excited poses of them celebrating, but De Gea simply looked p*ssed off!
The Spanish goalkeeper has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for close to a year – he missed out on a transfer to the La Liga giants last summer due to a fax issue, but The Express claimed this week that he remains a Bernabeu target.
So, although he was probably asked to put a face on like this for artistic effect, the Adidas-United poster campaign just paints a picture of a man who can’t wait to escape Old Trafford.
Fans also won’t be too impressed with the pricing of the kit.
An “authentic” jersey will cost you £89.95 – £25 more than the humble – yet still overpriced replica – while a pair of shorts are on the market for nearly 35 quid!
