Manchester United have launched their new home kit for the 2019/20 season, which pays homage to the Treble the club won during the 1998/99 campaign.

United remain the only English club to have won the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League in the same season.

The shirt has the numbers ’90+1′ and ’90+3′ printed on the sleeves; a reference to the minutes in which Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored in the dramatic 2-1 win over Bayern Munich to secure the European title.

The dates of the FA Cup final win over Newcastle and the game against Tottenham that sealed the league title are also printed on the bottom of the shirt.

The home kit features the traditional red shirt, white shorts and black socks, while the goalkeeper strip is purple, in a reference to the kit worn by Peter Schmeichel during the Treble-winning season.

Paul Pogba and David de Gea are two of the players fronting the promotional campaign for United’s new kit, despite question marks over the future of both players at Old Trafford.

Real Madrid are understood to be confident of signing Pogba this summer, while De Gea has just one year remaining on his contract and is yet to agree an extension.

While United’s new strip pays tribute to the year in which they famously won the Champions League in Barcelona, they will not be able to wear it in the competition; United’s sixth-place finish in the Premier League means they will be playing Europa League football next season.
