The Catalan giants seem to ditch their characteristic stripes and wear a chequered square home kit next season – while the away shirt is a beautiful tribute to Barcelona's Champions League glory.
Horizontal or vertical, blue and deep red stripes have been a characteristic feature of Barcelona's home kit for decades.
However, Leo Messi and Co will don a chequered square shirt next season as the brave design has been leaked online.
The jersey will surely suite Croatia midfielder Ivan Rakitic whose Croatia are well-known for their squared shirt.
On the contrary, the away kit seems to be a beautiful throwback to Barcelona glorious Champions League voyages.
The second kit appears to be yellow with a diagonal strips in Blaugrana colours.
It is similar to the one Andres Iniesta took off in euphoric celebration after scoring THAT injury time goal against Chelsea in the 2008/09 Champions League semis.
A similar design was used by the Catalans in the 1970s – the Johan Cruyff era.
Fans welcomed the projects with mixed reactions.
A Twitter user, @TheCricketBrain, said the away jersey looks like "from a beauty pageants".
But the home kit was much less appreciated, with @RobinVermeulen7 tweeting: "Nooooooooooo" alongside a crying emoji.
Another fan, @JacksonTyson11, speculated that the design might reveal Barcelona's plans to lure World Cup finalists Luka Modric, Mario Mandzukic and Ivan Perisic.
