Europe’s football heavyweights are releasing new strips for the 2017/18 season but who’s got the edge in the fashion stakes?

Plenty of Premier League sides have already revealed what they’ll be wearing next term and the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich have now followed suit.

Check out the new kits released so far on the continent…

Barcelona

Barcelona’s new home kit – featuring new Japanese sponsor Rakuten – is described by Nike as “an updated interpretation of the traditional Blaugrana stripes”.

Vertical red bands of different widths are cast against a deep royal blue, while detailing draws inspiration from the club’s history and culture. The collar reflects the Catalan flag and the words “Forca” and “Barca” feature on the inner sleeves.

“Pulling on the new Barca kit for the first time creates a mixture of pride and optimism for the season ahead,” said Neymar. “It looks and feels like a modern uniform of sport.”

Bayern Munich

Bayern’s new home kit, made by adidas, draws inspiration from the one of the most successful periods of the club’s history. The jersey, in traditional red but with thin vertical white stripes, echoed that worn by Franz Beckenbauer and Gerd Muller during the 1970s.

Bayern’s motto ‘Mia San Mia’ – roughly translated as ‘We know where we come from, who we are and what we aim for’ – also features on the reverse of the kit.

Inter Milan

Inter have stuck with their traditional black and blue for 2017/18, with vertical stripes of varying widths “taking inspiration from the city’s architecture,” according to kit-makers Nike.

The inside collar features a “Nerazzurri” label, while black socks have additional “Inter’ in white on the front and blue detail down the back of the calf.
