It has become an unsaid custom in football for teams to wear a special pre match jersey during the warm-up building up to the game.

While these jerseys are not used in any official game, they often highlight certain lesser- known details of the club’s history or play homage to some iconic kits.

According to reports from Footy Headlines, Adidas are set to unveil a retro Real Madrid jersey in 2023. The kit is said to be inspired from the 1990s and attempt to recreate the iconic jersey worn by the team between 1998 and 2000.

At that time, it was the first Real Madrid kit designed by Adidas after they replaced Kelme.

The front of the jersey is largely white with Navy Blue stripes on the sleeves and the collar. It also boasts of bold Navy-Orange-Navy EQT stripes on both sides to add a sparkle to the piece.

The centre of the shirt features the logo of the club and an Adidas logo right above the crest. It is a tribute to the EQT era in which Adidas could not release a kit for Los Blancos.

The kit is rumoured to be available by late December or early January and will retail for about €90 Euros. While the team will not wear it in an official match, it could be a staple pre-match jersey in the latter half of the season.

Paris Saint-Germain manager Luis Enrique has asked for patience regarding Kylian Mbappe’s future, saying that everyone must wait for the player and PSG to make an official announcement.

Now that the Ligue 1 team has qualified for the UEFA Champions League semi-final, the player is rightly expected to focus on the continental glory, keeping aside his impending move to Real Madrid.

Speaking after his side’s 4-1 win over Barcelona in the UCL quarter-final, Enrique said that he cannot comment on anything unless Mbappe himself releases a statement.

“Let’s wait for Kylian to speak about his future. When Mbappe and PSG will speak in public, we will see,” said Enrique as quoted by Fabrizio Romano.

“It’s like a process. Until Mbappe goes and speaks in public, I’m just here waiting and staying silent,” he added.

What’s going on with Mbappe?

Mbappe’s time with PSG is coming to an end as his contract expires this season, and if reports are to be believed, he has chosen to depart as a free agent.

Reports suggest he is set to join Real Madrid, with rumours of a contract already in place.

Now, it was suggested that PSG’s elimination from the Champions League could have hastened the process, potentially bringing Mbappe’s move to Madrid closer. 

However, their qualification for the semi-final, and the chance of facing Real Madrid in the final, mean any official announcement will likely be delayed.

As for the player, he revealed after the match that his future will not change even if PSG go on to win the UEFA Champions League. 

“Playing for the team from my country’s capital is very special, I dreamed of these play-offs when I came to PSG. It’s a great day for the club,” said the forward.
