Did PSG just tease an upcoming retro kit for next season?

Taking advantage of their partnership with EA Sports FIFA, the club from the French capital announced the release of a new set of retro kits in the videogame to use while playing as PSG in FIFA 23.

This news, paired with recent demands from the CUP regarding bringing back the retro design, has fostered all sorts of rumors related to a potential future jersey for Paris Saint-Germain.

The kits pictured in the Tweet posted by the official PSG account belong to the 1995/96 season. Because of trademark rights, they don't feature the OPEL sponsor on the chest, which appeared on the original kit back in the day.

In the middle of the 90s, Paris Saint-Germain was already established as an up-and-coming force featuring the likes of Youri Djorkaeff, Paul Le Guen, and Vincent Guerin.

Although the club has retained a very solid image in terms of their kits, colors, and badge, it cannot be argued that after the takeover by the Qatari-led owners of PSG, the organization entered a full rebranding that has benefited the whole enterprise while also not quite pleasing the most long-tenured fans of PSG.

Just a few years back, PSG extended their relationship with Nike to bring their Jordan Brand on board to manufacture some extra kits and pieces of merchandise. Those have been wild at times and clearly diverging from the decades-old history of the club.

According to the latest leaks, and as we already reported a month ago, PSG is trying to move toward a "retro" design that links the present and the past of the club while still not using their mid-90s kits, at least judging by these leaks.

Of course, you have to take this information with a grain of salt until it becomes official. However, and considering kits are designed months in advance, it's fair to at least consider this leak as a (most probably) legitimate one.
