American singer-songwriter Sabrina Carpenter has been spotted wearing Manchester United's soon-to-be-released goalkeeper shirt for next season – and it's going down well with fans.

The 25-year-old, who performed live at the O2 Apollo in Manchester this month, appears to have got her hands on the jersey with new sponsor Snapdragon.

In the photo, the popular actress is seen alongside fellow musician Griff, who announced that she will be supporting Carpenter on her latest tour, and posing in the new jersey for the 2024/25 season.

Kit website FootyHeadlines suggest that there will be a tri-colour flag under the back collar as well as the iconic trefoil logo seen on some of the most iconic football shirts.

The logo was originally used on jerseys in the '70s and '80s, but is making a much-anticipated comeback in the coming months as Adidas focuses on reviving its heritage.

This is how fans reacted on social media to the leaked Manchester United jersey.

One said: “I still can't believe they made our best shirt in years and gave it to the goalkeeper,” while another commented: “Man that should have been the third shirt, it's awesome.”

A third wrote: “Last year we had Aitch at Glastonbury and now we have Sabrina. That's a lovely shirt.”

A fourth commented: “Sabrina Carpenter was the first person in the world to be seen in United's new goalkeeper shirt? Looks good I must say,” and a fifth added: “The shirt is amazing.”

In September, United announced a deal with American technology company Qualcomm that will see the Snapdragon brand replace TeamViewer as shirt sponsor from the start of next season.

As a result, the instantly recognisable Snapdragon logo, a red S with dragon features on a white ball, will be plastered across the centre of United's home, away and third shirts for 24/25 and beyond.

A club statement said: “Snapdragon platforms will help enable groundbreaking experiences for fans around the world and deepen their connection with the football club they love.”

Some have compared Snapdragon's logo to that of old sponsor Vodafone, which appeared on the front of United's shirt from 2000 to 2006.
