Real Madrid home and away kit for 2022/23 leaked
Real Madrid’s prestigious white kit has not seen a lot of change for years now, with Adidas experimenting with the away and third kit more often. The fans seem to be happy with an all-white home jersey each season, and Adidas has done their best to cater it to them.
Ahead of the 2022/23 season, Madrid’s home and away kits have been leaked. The home strip features Adidas’ purple ‘three stripes’ on the shoulders, with black and purple accents on the collar.

The away kit has picked up from the where the home one left off with the shade of purple. If leaks are to be belived, the entire kit is a gradient of purple and white diamonds cut up diagonally.
The crest, too, is a monochrome purple and black, while the Adidas logo is white. It is certainly an experimental kit, and has received mixed responses from fans.

While the third kit has not been leaked completely, it will likely feature black and lime as primary colours, with the crest in monochrome.

Real Madrid defender on the radars of Juventus, could leave for €6-8 million
Real Madrid are looking towards a heavy splurge in the coming summer transfer window. After all, they do not even have another option given the sheer number of player departures already finalized.
Los Blancos have lost the services of Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio, Mariano Diaz, and Eden Hazard over the past week. While three of the four players predominantly featured on the bench, their presence in the squad gave Carlo Ancelotti’s side much-needed depth and a cushion of sorts.
The forward unit is, thus, the most prioritized department ahead of the transfer window. However, pieces are beginning to fall apart on other fronts and could potentially put the club in a difficult situation.
According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus are eyeing Lucas Vazquez and hope to sign him in the coming month. Contacts between the two parties have begun and the transfer fee discussed appears to be around the €6 million to €8 million ballpark given that he has just one year left on his contract.
The player, for his part, is willing to sign for the Italian giants given his relative lack of minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu. At 31 years of age, he understandably does not want to play a second-fiddle role.
Vasquez played part in 23 of Real Madrid’s 38 La Liga games last season, starting only on 12 occasions. Even in his few appearances, he averaged a mere 50 minutes per game.
The veteran completed the season with four goals and an assist to his name. Further, he averaged five defensive actions and a key pass in every game and feels hard done by his limited role.
Vazquez’s departure would place the club in a tricky situation as it would leave Real Madrid with only Dani Carvajal as a natural right-back option. Nacho Fernandez could, in theory, serve as the backup but a new signing for the position cannot be ruled out.
