Real Madrid are set to return to their traditional white and purple colours from next season. Following on from several years in which red, green, orange, pink and grey have featured in the club's second strips, Adidas are intent on bringing about a return to the club's classic colours.
At present the discussions about the various models are ongoing, with a final version yet to have been decided on, the idea is for the home kit to be all white with the purple stripes of the Adidas brand, and for the second kit to be completely purple.
It's a move which will please the Real faithful, who have been slightly unhappy at the various colour changes seen over the last few seasons.
The return to purple marks the first time since the 2010-11 season that 'Los Merengues' will wear this colour.Purple has historically been the colour to most frequently feature in Real Madrid's second strips.
It was in purple that 'La Quinta del Buitre' (the five home grown talents from the 1980's) burst onto the scene, that Raúl wore on his bow at La Romareda and in which Christian Karembeu netted the vital goal in Leverkusen en route to the club's seventh European Cup.
It's a colour which has always gone hand in hand with Real Madrid triumphs. The 2002-2003 side - with Zidane and Ronaldo at the fore - wore purple in some of their games, although they also combined it with a black strip, in a season in which they finished as champions.
Nevertheless, Adidas are also working with Real Madrid on releasing a third kit, which is set to move away from the club's traditional colour scheme, and will be aimed more at being a commercial success.
