Kylian Mbappe unveils new PSG Nike away kit in tribute to Greater Paris and fans love it

PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN have unveiled their new Nike away kit and fans can't get enough of it.

Kylian Mbappe and Neymar posed in the new kit, which the club says is an ode to Greater Paris, in an ad campaign alongside new signings Sergio Ramos and Georginio Wijnaldum.


They shared their latest strip on Twitter and won't have any problems selling any judging by their supporter's reactions.

One user wrote: "This club has the best."

While another said: "Cleannnnnnnn."

This was the general feeling amongst most fans who also lauded praise on the new design.

The shirt is predominantly grey, with a pink and black stripe running down the middle of its front.

A club statement said: "The daring and innovative pieces feature the club’s classic themes – logo, stripe down the middle, lily flower – and pay tribute to Greater Paris, which is symbolised with references to postmodern architecture from the early 1970s, the Ile-de-France postcodes, and the use of 'Paname' a slang word for Paris and its suburbs." 

Some fans had already sneaked a peek at PSG's new-look after it was leaked online earlier this month.

It's become the norm for the Ligue 1 runners-up, who missed out on the title to Lille, to chop and change their kits over the last few years.

In 2018, they wore a strip made by basketball legend Michael Jordan's Nike spin-off brand in the Champions League in a bid to boost their overseas profile.

And it's not just PSG's shirt designs that's had a revamp, there's been a number of changes made to their squad this summer too.

In a shrewd bit of business, they signed ex-Real Madrid ace Ramos, ex-Liverpool star Wijnaldum and Italy's Euro 2020 winning keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma on free transfers.

Ramos, who left Los Blancos after 16 years, penned a two-year deal with Mauricio Pochettino's side earlier this month.

The Spain defender will be on lower wages at PSG than the approximately £310,000-a-week he earned at Madrid.

The Paris side swooped in at the last minute and stole Dutch midfielder Wijnaldum right from under Barcelona's noses and he signed a three-year contract with them.

And ex-AC Milan keeper Donnarumma will be at the club for the next five years.

The trio are joined at the Le Parc des Princes stadium by defender Achraf Hakimi.

PSG signed the 22-year-old from Inter Milan for £59million on a five-year contract.

It remains to be seen if Pochettino's new troops will feature in their new kit alongside want-away mega-star Mbappe.

The 22-year-old's contract talks with the club has hit the skids over his wage demands and he's been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu.
