Barcelona unveil new pink third kit that will cost fans a staggering £100

BARCELONA have released a third pink kit for this season, and it will set you back a whopping £99.55.

Kit manufacturers Nike wanted the shirt to pay homage to the city of Barcelona and features a bold sash design inspired Avinguda Diagonal, one of the city’s most famous streets.

The two-tone shirt that will be worn by Lionel Messi and his team-mates incorporates a darker red which gives way to a paler pink shade.

Barca’s other two kits for the campaign have their own theme attached as the home shirt celebrates the ten principle districts of the capital of Catalonia.

The yellow away shirt reflects the 2005/06 campaign when the club won the Champions League and the La Liga title.

The La Liga champions used Ousmane Dembele, Philippe Coutinho and Gerard Pique to advertise the kit.

Of course, if you fancy getting you hands on the new Barcelona kit and you don't fancy paying top dollar, you can buy the replica shirt rather than the match day jersey for £64.95 from Nike's official store.

And Sports Direct have the adult jersey even cheaper at £54.99, which you can find here.

The Spanish side are following in the footsteps of Manchester United who unveiled their own pink kit that goes on sale on September 13 in the UK.

Barcelona have made a perfect start to the defence of their title-winning all three of their games so far.

Only bitter rivals Real Madrid have been able to keep pace with Ernesto Valverde’s side at the top of the table with a 100-per-cent record.

After battering Huesca 8-2 at the Nou Camp earlier this month, Barca are back in action after the international break and go to San Sebastian to face Real Sociedad.

Los Blancos are also in the Basque country on Saturday as they take on Athletic Bilbao.
