With the current campaign drawing to a close and thoughts already turning to next season, a number of possible options for next year's home shirt have already been discovered and leaked online, but Spanish publication ​Sport now suggest that this latest leak is the 'definitive' home shirt.



Gone is current sponsor Qatar Airways and in comes the club's newest one, Rakuten, who begin their new partnership with the Blaugrana in a four-year-deal that will see the club receive an annual sum of £47m.

Not only is there a change in shirt sponsor, but there is also a tweak to the styling, as the blue and red striping is no longer evenly spread out. 

Instead, the main colour of the shirt is blue, whilst there are thin red stripes in the centre of the top, rather than all the way round. 

The club's association with UNICEF remains in place, with the charity's logo still displayed on the back.

Barcelona themselves have yet to unveil their new home kit for next season, but with the new campaign already on the horizon, we will soon find out whether this latest leak by Footy Headlines is correct or not.
