Since 1902 when the club was renamed Manchester United following its initial period being known as Newton Heath the traditional home colours have been red and black.

The current Manchester United football shirt is manufactured by Nike.  This deal is due to end soon and some reports suggest they have nearly completed a renewal that will be worth a staggering £60m a year for 5 years.

The brand new 2013 - 2014 home kit features a simple red body with contrasting black collar. This design remembers one of the team's most successful periods of the 1990s and the days of Eric Cantona wearing the collar upturned.

A modern twist is given with several buttons to fasten down the collar, the underside of the collar remembers the teams heritage with a gingham check design.

It is available in a range sizes including the Manchester United boys home football shirt, as well as baby kits and adult shirts.

The most successful period for the club has been since the introduction of the Premier League in 1992. Throughout this period from 1986 - 2013 Sir Alex Ferguson was manager of the team that wear the Manchester United football shirt.

Under his leadership the team won 13 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cups, 2 Champions Leagues and 1 FIFA Club World Cup amongst other titles.

At the end of the 2012 - 2013 football season Sir Alex Ferguson announced that he would be retiring as the Man Utd manager.

At the age of 71 following 26 years at the club, with 38 trophies to his name he felt it was the right time, much to the disappointment of the loyal fans.

Over recent years the Manchester United football shirt has been the best-selling soccer shirt in the world. Recent statistics released by Nike show that over the last 5 seasons they have sold an average of 1.4 millions jerseys per season, their best seller.

The top 3 requests for printed kits last season were all for Red Devils players, they were Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Shinji Kagawa.

Alex Ferguson has opted to stay on as an advisor to the club and was influential in choosing his replacement who would lead the star studded team that wear the Manchester United football shirt.

David Moyes, former Everton manager was selected and joined the team during the summer. Ferguson finished on a high winning last seasons Premiership title, filling his shoes is a tough role to follow for Moyes.

So far David Moyes has come in for much criticism; he failed to make any new signings during the summer transfer window putting no new faces in the Manchester United home football shirt.

In comparison opposition teams have significantly strengthened their teams during this period. The opening games this season have been disappointing, resulting in the clubs worst ever start to a Premier League campaign.

Despite the teams bad start and the fact that they are currently only 8th in the Premier League table Alex Ferguson has recently voiced his backing of Moyes by stating that we may still see the team win this years League title.

The Manchester United football shirt remains a popular choice for supporters that want to get behind the team and show support for the new manager, and is likely to remain a best seller throughout the season and for many years to come.
