Man City launch new kit with a Zabaleta selfie

Manchester City have launched their new kit for the 2015/16 season with a Pablo Zabaleta and a fan. It's the modern way...

The shirt is fitted with Nike Dri-FIT technology which apparently draws sweat away from the body to the exterior of the shirt and shorts where it quickly evaporates - so the players can sweat as much as they like.

Stoke are also reportedly in talks with former Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri after agreeing a £12m fee with Inter Milan for his signature.
