    Chelsea put new home kit on sale with eye-watering £175 cost… and the shorts alone will set you back £60

    CHELSEA have announced that their new home kit has been put on sale for an eye-watering £175.
    Blues fans hoping to imitate Christian Pulisic and new signing Timo Werner next season will need to rake in a footballer’s pay packet to afford the latest strip.

    The club’s £200million sponsorship deal with Yokohama Tyres ended last month meaning Chelsea stars have already begun wearing their new kit.
    Although the strip failed to bring Chelsea much luck on its debut as Frank Lampard’s side fell 3-2 to West Ham.
    Nevertheless, the new kit is expected to signal the start of a new era of dominance at Stamford Bridge, with the Blues tipped for a title challenge next season and still within FA Cup glory this term.
    But fans hoping to don the exact same fabrics as the players will need to fork out a fortune, with the home shirt selling at £99.95.

    The Vapor jersey is said to come with AeroSwift technology, which allows for maximum comfort and offers 20 per cent more stretch.
    The official plain blue shorts with a Nike tick will then set supporters back a further £59.95, with socks an extra £15.95.
    And overall costs will soar over the £200 mark should fans choose to get a name and number on the back.
    One tweeted: “Chelsea are charging £15.99 for some white football socks with a tiny Chelsea lion on them for their new kit. F***ing mental price that!”

    Another said: “The new Chelsea home kit is £99.95 without adding any extras…Looks like we’re all investing in the transfer window one way or the other.”

    A third added: “Shirts used to last for two years before they changed. Around £50 each time is too much.”
    A slightly cheaper Chelsea kit is also available, with the Blues selling a replica home shirt for £69.95 – the same price as the Women’s shirt.
    The stadium jersey contains a few minor visual differences to the official strip and is much more loose-fitting.

    Shorts for that outfit are also down to £34.95 although there is no cheaper alternative to the club’s white socks.
    Meanwhile, parents will need to front £84.95 to dress their kids in the exact same shirt as Mason Mount and co.
    But most will be hoping they can purchase the slightly more affordable £54.95 replica jersey for their children.
