Barcelona are set to ditch their stripy kit for the first time in their history next season, according to reports.
Instead the Catalan club will wear a chequered design in a move which has already horrified fans.
Production will soon begin with Barca chiefs having already given the thumbs up to the new Nike design, according to Sport.

Details are still being finalised but it bears a similar resemblance to Croatia’s iconic strip.
Croatian midfielder Ivan Rakitic will no doubt take little time to get used to it should he remain at the Nou Camp next season.
Furious supporters have branded the new-look kit a “horror”, “mess” and “joke”.
One fumed: “What a mess, it’s not that it’s ugly, IT’S WORST.”
Another ranted: “Horrible. An insult to the history of one of the most important clubs on the planet.”
Fans will have been pleased, though, to see Barcelona get off to a flying start in the Champions League.
Lionel Messi’s brilliant hat-trick and Ousmane Dembele’s strike completed a 4-0 rout over PSV at home.
The Argentine scored his first from a free-kick which PSV could do nothing about.
Rakitic said: “A lot of the time when we get a free-kick we are already thinking about the celebration.”
Barca boss Ernesto Valverde was full of praise as well.
He said: “Messi does extraordinary things and makes them look routine.”
What do you think about the proposed new kit?
