Chelsea‘s new kits for the 2017/18 season have been leaked online, with manufacturers Nike taking over for the first time, and some supporters are getting pretty excited.
For more than a decade now, German giants Adidas have manufactured the Blues’ home, away and third kits for their Premier League and European campaigns but American behemoth Nike are taking the reins from now on in a deal though to be worth £60 million per season.
Nike and Chelsea have agreed a contract until 2032 and fans have been eager to get a glimpse of what Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Willian will all be wearing next season.
It looks like the final designs have been leaked online ahead of their official launch on July 1, and for some supporters that date can’t come quick enough:

What do you think of the design? And could Chelsea really be waiting to confirm signings until the new strip is in the shops?
What do you think?
