Man City new home kit leaked featuring cracked mosaic pattern across chest
Puma are set to release a cracked mosaic sky blue home kit for Manchester City ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
City will go into the season looking to regain the Premier League title, with rivals Liverpool set to lift the trophy for the first time in their history.
There are also a number of unanswered questions surrounding the club’s appeal of the two-year European ban they were handed by UEFA for financial fair play breaches.
Should the ban be upheld, there are fears that key players could leave the club and existing sponsorship deals could be affected if City are no longer playing in Europe’s most prestigious club competition.

Kit sponsors Puma signed a lucrative ten-year, £650m deal with City in February 2019 and they have placed their backing behind the club, claiming they “fully trust” the club’s management and are “convinced that these accusations will be cleared”.
With that in mind, Puma have continued with their plans to redesign City’s home kit and Footy Headlines have released a leaked image of the new design.

The shirt keeps the iconic City sky blue but features a white cracked mosaic pattern across the chest.
It is said the kit is part of Puma’s “Crafted from culture” theme, with the mosaic pattern inspired by the mosaics that can be seen across Manchester which honour local sporting, musical and business icons.
The purple accents and trim from this season’s shirt has also been scrapped.
The leaked design has not gone down well with City fans, with the majority hating the mosaic idea.

“Why can’t it just be a solid blue?” moaned a third supporter. “These kit manufacturers are always doing too much.”
“Whoever designed this got inspired while they were next to a swimming pool”, commented another.
“Does it represent their Champions League hopes and dreams?” joked a rival fan.
