Manchester City and Nike have teamed up to produce a striking limited edition ‘celebration jersey’ made up of nine of the club’s most popular shirts.

The incredible design, which pays homage to City’s success in Nike kits during their six-year partnership, features last season’s home shirt, in which Pep Guardiola’s men broke the record for Premier League points as they stormed to the title.

The club’s white and blue third shirt from the Double-winning 2013-14 campaign is also included, as is their current away design.
