1986-1987 (Adidas) Manchester United FC Home Jersey

Adidas recently negotiated a ten-year kit manufacturing deal with Manchester United FC; when the deal was signed it was the biggest deal - in terms of money - ever signed. Adidas previously manufactured Manchester United's kit in the 1980's. To capitalize on their new kit deal, Adidas have reproduced some of the home jersey's from the 1980's, and are currently selling them at adidas.co.uk (their official online webshop). Adidas are currently selling a replica of the 1986-1987 Manchester United FC home jersey - as shown below - but have mistakenly stated on their website that it's the 1984-1985 home jersey. The 86' men's home jersey is currently for sale for £54.95, and features: v-neck collar, tonal pinstripe fabric, 100% polyester fabric, and club crest.
