Basketball star dons United graphic tracksuit

Gary Trent Jr. of the Portland Trail Blazers has been spotted donning the Manchester United graphic tracksuit which is linked to our current third kit.

The basketball star wore the outfit - which is available here - for the match against Houston Rockets at the Houston Toyota Center on Thursday evening.
In a tight contest, the Trail Blazers lost the match by 101 to 104, but it was Trent Jr.'s attire pre and post-match which really caught our eye.
After arriving in the graphic tracksuit for the game, he was back in it for the post-match press conference.
Our third kit is a visually distinctive design, inspired by striped jerseys from the club’s history. From United’s first striped kit over 100 years ago, to the eye-catching designs of the 1970s and 80s, the kit aims to provide a fresh update to tradition, while delivering a vibrant new print. 

To create this new design, adidas re-drew, hacked and re-imagined combined elements from various jerseys throughout the club’s long history to create a bold new pattern. Utilising United’s iconic club colours of red, white and black, the kit is an original story with a modern update.
