Chelsea fans may have been given an early glimpse of the new Nike kits the team will be wearing next season.
Images posted on social media claim to reveal the Blues’ official 2017/18 strip following the club’s mega £900m deal with Nike last year.
The home jersey combines Chelsea’s traditional blue and white colors and features a unique color gradient on the design.
Our away kit will supposedly be white with a blue stripe on the front and on the sleeves.

Earlier leaks saw Chelsea donning an unusual looking diamond pattern on their home strip, but these darker blue designs look a real improvement and more in keeping with most of Nike’s other recent kits.
There’s also a slight difference in the away shirt, with the previous rumoured design showing a plain white shirt with gold lettering, though this one has a nice blue line going over the club crest, just right of the sponsor in the middle.
It’ll be a big move for Nike as well, having ended agreements with big names such as Arsenal and Manchester United in recent seasons.
Latest leaks don’t make it clear if there will be a third kit for Chelsea, though previous images have shown a black and orange strip as well as a white alternative.
