Designs for a Manchester United's away kit has done the rounds on Twitter and, to the apparent dismay of many, it is pink. Yes, pink.

The Sun's headline upon revealing the news was typically hysterical. 'Manchester United PINK away shirt leaked'. PINK. It's pink, by the way.

There is, though, still uncertainty as to whether the shirt is actually real. It has not been confirmed by the club and shirt news gurus Footy Headlines have since claimed that the supposedly leaked prototype is in fact a fake.

It is, however, true that the actual kit will be pink.

The kit is reportedly inspired by the old Manchester Evening News' "Football Pink" news section which was printed on light pink paper.

United have never in their history worn pink. Other clubs, though, have, including Juventus and Palermo in Serie A.

For some, the colour will not be suitably masculine. "When Man United get this pink kit the squad will become full time snap chatters and we will never win again," said one Twitter user. "To suit all the nonces at the club....hideous kit..." wrote another.

While nothing has been confirmed at this point, often when pink is used as the base colour, at least the shorts, and sometimes the socks, match the shirt's trim, meaning a black lower half could be expected from the designers.
