Chelsea are yet to follow in the footsteps of fellow Champions League clubs Manchester City and Liverpool and release their new home kit for 2017/18, but leaks suggest it won’t be too far off.
Footy Headlines published images of the alleged new blue shirt this week, which will be Chelsea’s first as part of their new lucrative partnership with Nike after splitting from adidas.

Unlike this season’s title winning shirt, which featured subtle Chelsea lions dotted all over, it appears to be a much plainer and classic look.
Although seemingly lacking any trim except for ‘Chelsea FC’ on the back of the next, the design is similar to that other of Nike clubs, like Manchester City, in its makeup and fabric.
Yokohama Tyres returns as the sponsor for the second season of a reported £200m deal. The club’s partnership with Nike is believed to be worth a staggering £600m over a 10-year period and is second only to Manchester United’s deal with Adidas in terms of value.
