Cristiano Ronaldo’s new shirt number is Manchester United is one of the hot topics, as excited fans of the Red Devils can’t wait to see their man in their famed jersey.
David Beckham, George Best, Denis Law, Eric Cantona and Bryan Robson, have all worn the coveted number 7 jersey.
The Portuguese just completed a sensational £13 million move to the Old Trafford, and while social media has been sent into frenzy with the move a lot are asking what jersey he is going to wear.
Let’s look at the options….
Ronaldo rejoins Man Utd – What shirt number will he wear?
As at the time of filing this report, his jersey number has not been confirmed, though the usual suspect is the number 7 jersey.
It is his trademark. The CR7 brand.
I don’t see him ditching the jersey number…but just like the Messi-Neymar situation, there is already a player assigned to that jersey.
Uruguayan star striker and legend, Edinson Cavani is already been assigned to the number 7 jersey of Manchester United.
His future with the Red Devils is currently up in the smokes, though a report from Goal claims he would remain in England.
The number nine jersey, which Ronaldo has also worn in the past, is currently taken by no other person than Anthony Martial.
What shirt numbers are available to Ronaldo at Man Utd?
Should Ronaldo be unable to take up number seven, he would have to make do with one of the following available numbers: 12, 15, 24, 30, 31, 33, 35. He has not worn any of those before.
Well, we would all keep our fingers crossed to see how this fairy tale unfolds.
