Manchester City arrived in Barcelona kitted out in slick designer clothing on Tuesday and the club have now revealed that they have signed a deal with DSQUARED2.
The international fashion house have put pen to paper on a multi-year contract with the Premier League outfit to design clothing for City’s trips to away games in the Champions League.
Fans will also be able to take advantage of the partnership as DSQUARED2 will be making co-branded products available to supporters.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola looked dapper in the full DSQUARED2 uniform as he wheeled his luggage into Manchester Airport.
But if you wanted to replicate Pep’s look, you’d better have deep pockets.
A search through the DSQUARED2 website shows that the bomber jacket comes in at £670.
The white shirt underneath is £170 and the grey pullover £325.
The dark jeans come in at a cool £325 while the white trainers to complete the look cost £305.
The total? A pricey £1,735.
Bomber jacket – £670
Jeans – £265
Grey Pullover – £325
White Shirt – £170
White trainers – £305
Canadian founders Dan and Dean Caten have announced their delight at being able to link up with Manchester City ahead of their highly anticipated showdown with Barcelona.
Manchester City senior vice president of partnerships for City Football Group Damian Willoughby said of the club’s new agreement: ‘DSQUARED2 and Manchester City share many important brand values.
‘We both believe in the importance of attention to detail, providing the best experience and constantly challenging ourselves to be at the top of our game.
‘Throughout the partnership, we will collaborate to highlight the best features of our brands and supporters, bringing the past, present and future together.
‘We are all looking forward to working with DSQUARED2 over the coming seasons and we know the players are very excited to begin wearing their new matchday uniforms.’

The whole outfit costs £1,735 – with the bomber jacket alone checking in at £670 on the company’s website.
The grey pullover as worn by Guardiola and his players comes in at a cool £325.
It comes after Wednesday’s opponents, Barcelona, started rocking the double denim look when travelling to their away matches as part of a tie-in with fashion label Replay.
The attire worn by Lionel Messi, Neymar, Andres Iniesta and Co prompted a fair few raised eyebrows though the double denim look is enjoying something of a renaissance.
