Real Madrid, the illustrious 14-time Champions League winners, have revealed their new home kit for the upcoming season, featuring gold trimming as they seek to reaffirm their dominance in style. The unveiling of the kit coincided with the official confirmation of the club’s signing of in-demand English star Jude Bellingham for a staggering £113 million.
Fans may be disheartened by the hefty price tag attached to the replica shirt, which is retailing for £128 on the club’s official website. Staying true to their tradition, Los Blancos maintain their iconic all-white strip, complemented by Adidas’s renowned three stripes in gold on the sleeve, and blue piping on the collar and armband.
One notable addition to the shirt is the inclusion of the slogan ‘Hala Madrid!’—the first time it has appeared on the kit. While the new design pays homage to the club’s heritage through its color palette, the shirt itself boasts modern features, constructed from recycled materials and incorporating HEAT.RDY technology for optimal temperature regulation, keeping players cool during matches.
The home kit is completed by white shorts and white socks, also adorned with the gold trim. Notably, the kit features the Club World Cup badge, commemorating Real Madrid’s historic eighth triumph in the competition, achieved with a resounding 5-3 victory over Saudi side Al-Hilal in February.
Real Madrid is currently undergoing a transitional period as they seek to replace some of their key players, including the departing Frenchman Karim Benzema. The transfer market has been marked by uncertainty, particularly in the quest to fill the striker position, and the imminent departure of Kylian Mbappe from PSG could prompt Madrid to act sooner than anticipated.
The acquisition of Jude Bellingham from Borussia Dortmund appears to signal a new era of success for the club, with a bolstered, younger squad that includes Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo, who will now wear the numbers 7 and 11, respectively. In an official statement, Real Madrid confirmed the transfer: “‘Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund have agreed on the transfer of the player Jude Bellingham, who will remain linked to our club for the next six seasons. Tomorrow, Thursday, June 15, at 12:00 noon at Real Madrid City, the presentation ceremony for Jude Bellingham as a new Real Madrid player will take place. Afterward, Jude Bellingham will appear before the media.”
Bellingham recently earned the title of Bundesliga Player of the Season for his exceptional performances with Dortmund, despite narrowly missing out on the league title on the final day of the campaign. Although he will not be available for England’s upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia due to injury, he remains determined to make his mark on the biggest stage, considering the Champions League as his ultimate ambition. “The goal has always been winning,” Bellingham stated. “When you ask me what my biggest ambitions are in the game, it’s to win everything. And I’m not afraid to say that. You know, everyone should have that goal, I feel like, as professional footballers.”
