Manchester United have unveiled their new away kit for the 2017-18 season - but one player's presence in the photoshoot is causing as much chatter as the shirt itself.

David de Gea was featured in a promotion picture surrounding the kits's launch, giving fans hope that the goalkeeper - subject of interest from Real Madrid - will be staying this summer.

The new kit's design has a retro feel about it, with a similar pattern to the 1991/92 adidas away kit.

Adidas say they have 'reconnected with the past to connect with the future'  with the design of the new shirt.

While the immediate reaction suggested fans are happy with the look of the new shirt, De Gea's presence caused just as much delight.
