Manchester United: what number for Cristiano Ronaldo?

After the announcement of Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United, the big question now concerns the number of the shirt he will have.

During his first visit in 2003, “CR7” wore the legendary number 7, also worn by George Best, Eric Cantona or even David Beckham before him. Obviously, no one imagines it with another. But for now, this is not yet possible.

Today, Edinson Cavani wears it. But Manchester United is doing everything to ensure that Cristiano Ronaldo recovers his number 7. To do so, it would first require a departure from the Uruguayan. What is possible for this last day of the summer transfer window, “El Matador” is targeted by FC Barcelona. If the former Parisian goes to Catalonia, the No. 7 would then easily be left to the Portuguese.

On the other hand, if Cavani does not leave, there should be a number change between players that the Premier League could allow. With the probable departure of Daniel James (Leeds), the top scorer in the history of PSG would take the 21 and thus leave the 7 to Cristiano Ronaldo.

In any case, CR7, who therefore played for the Red Devils between 2003 and 2009, with 118 goals in 292 games, a Champions League and a first Golden Ball, said he was eager to find Old Trafford. “Manchester United is a club that has always had a special place in my heart,” said Ronaldo (36). I have been overwhelmed by all the messages I have received since Friday’s announcement. I can’t wait to play at Old Trafford, in front of a full stadium, and see all the fans again. I can’t wait to join the team after the international matches. I hope we will have a successful season. ”
