Real Madrid boast some of world football’s most elegant, yet simple jerseys. The general colour theme of white and gold is equally captivating to the eye as it has been for decades and still strikes up the same feeling of deep loyalty in its players.
According to I Football Designs, Real Madrid’s home kit for the 2023-24 season has been leaked.
Quite unsurprisingly, Real Madrid and Adidas have continued to follow the traditional white theme for the upcoming season with small, yet significant changes in the design.
While the kit continues to appear as a similar white to the current season, it no longer will boast a plain solid colour. On the contrary, it will have a mild scaling pattern to enhance the visual effect.
The next big difference is seen on the collar where the single black stripe has been replaced by two different coloured stripes – one gold and one black.
The same gold-and-black theme extends to the edge of the sleeves, a feature missing in the 2021-22 home kit. Finally, the leaked kit boasts three signature gold stripes running along the shoulder line up to the collar.
On the front of the jersey, Emirates retain their place as the chief sponsor. The logos of Real Madrid and Adidas complete the visual of the front of the rumoured kit.
The design can thus be considered a significantly upgraded version of the current home kit with an added touch of glamour and glory. It adds up to the impressive kit lineup for next season alongside the away kit that features a combination of Navy Blue and Yellow.

With less than six months left on his contract, Marco Asensio looks to be on his way out of Real Madrid very soon. The Spaniard has not yet started talks to extend his contract with the Spanish giants, which has garnered the eyes from several top clubs across Europe.

According to Mirror, Asensio’s agents will fly to London this week to get an a better understanding Arsenal’s interest in the player. Talks are scheduled with Arsenal, among possibly other clubs.
Asensio’s priority remains to extend with Arsenal, but not at ‘any cost’. The winger is looking for raise with his new contract to go along with a four-year deal. The report states that he currently earns around €130,000 per week at Madrid.
The 27-year-old has been waiting for an official offer from Los Blancos for a while, but the club will wait for March or April before taking a decision on his extension.
Asensio took a while to grow important for Carlo Ancelotti this season, but has been featuring regularly on the right-wing lately. He even scored in 2-0 win against Valencia in midweek, taking his tally to two for the season, excluding three assists as well.
Arsenal are definitely looking to add more firepower to their squad for next season, having already brought in Leandro Trossard in the winter. Asensio could serve as the perfect backup to Bukayo Saka, who has been in incredible form all season.
