Manchester City release bizarre new mash-up kit featuring NINE old shirts which Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Co will warm-up in for title run in… and 6,000 fans can buy it for £47.99

Manchester City and Nike have teamed up to produce a striking limited edition ‘celebration jersey’ made up of nine of the club’s most popular shirts.

The incredible design, which pays homage to City’s success in Nike kits during their six-year partnership, features last season’s home shirt, in which Pep Guardiola‘s men broke the record for Premier League points as they stormed to the title.

The club’s white and blue third shirt from the Double-winning 2013-14 campaign is also included, as is their current away design.

Just 6,000 of the shirts – which will be individually numbered – will be sold via Nike’s website and at select retailers from April 10. It will cost supporters £47.99.

Fans will be able to get a glimpse of Raheem Sterling and Co wearing the mash-up design as Guardiola’s players warm-up in them before Saturday’s clash with Fulham at Craven Cottage.

City will continue to wear the shirt in their pre-match warm-ups for the remainder of the season, although there are no plans for them to wear it during a match.

Last season’s purple away kit, the orange and purple third shirt from 2016-17 and the fluorescent green third strip from 2015-16 – complete with the club’s previous badge on the back of the shirt – are also included in the maverick design.

John Stones, Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden posed in the shirt ahead of its debut this weekend.

Asked which shirt in the new kit was his favourite, midfielder Foden said: ‘My personal favorite is the home jersey from last season. I made my debut wearing that, so it means a lot me.

‘It’s great because the fans will be able to point out the jerseys and relive the memories created in them.’
