Barcelona aren't even ten games into their 2020/21 La Liga season but we're already seeing leaks emerge of next season's away strip.

Ronald Koeman has gotten off to an indifferent start as La Blaugrana boss with the Catalans languishing down in 13th after eight games, although they do hold two games in hand over most of the division.

However, their 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid last weekend means they're currently 12 points adrift of leaders Real Sociedad and nine behind Atleti - who have played the same number of games.

Away from the actual football, though, Barça are donning an impressive triumvirate of strips this season, including their 1920s Golden Generation-inspired home kit - which also has a distinct resemblance to their yellow-collared 2010/11 jersey worn by arguably the greatest club side of all time.

The home strip accompanies a sharp black and gold away kit and a Mediterranean-inspired third kit.

However, thanks to the ever-reliable Footy Headlines, leaks for the 2021/22 campaign have already emerged with Barcelona set to introduce a bold purple colourway for next season's away strip.

While the Catalan giants donned a slick purple number only four years ago during the 2016/17 season, the exact shade of the colour will be much different this time around. It will be much lighter and less saturated than the aforementioned strip.

The logos on next season's away kit are set to feature an iridescent finish that will combine gold with navy and red.

That's all that is known at this early stage, however.

Nevertheless, the recent leak comes a month after Footy Headlines confirmed designs for Barcelona's 2021/22 home strip.

The shirt will combine three colours: soar, 'noble red' and 'pale ivory', and has drawn inspiration from the club's crest - as reported by Mundo Deportivo back in October.
