The Season in brief

As had been the case in recent years, United were linked with a host of players during the summer transfer window. The first to arrive was Victor Lindelof, a £31m signing from Benfica. He was joined by Romelu Lukaku, signed from Everton for an initial fee of £75m and Nemnanja Matic, who completed a £40m move from Chelsea. Almost £10m was recouped with the sale of Adnan Januzaj to Real Sociedad. As expected Wayne Rooney left the club, rejoing Everton.

A full review of the season will appear here in June 2018.

adidas produced three new kit designs. The home kit was launched on July 3rd 2017. The shirt featured a new button-up collar, a homage to classic kits from the past, with the adidas three stripes across the shoulders.

The change kit, based on the 1990-1992 change kit, had been launced on May 10th.

A competition to design United's third kit was won by Aniello Carotenuto, and was launched on July 21st. The light grey shirt includes a silhouette of the 'Holy Trinity' statue.

Confusingly, United registered the grey kit as their change with the Premier League, and the black kit as the third.
