Cristiano Ronaldo will wear the number 7 shirt when he returns to Manchester United, the club said on Thursday.
There has been much speculation over the 36-year-squad old’s number, especially because Edinson Cavani has worn his prefered number 7 since last season.
Cavani, on the other hand, has now turned it up to Ronaldo for the 2021/2021 season.
“Ronaldo inherits the number from Edinson Cavani, who wore the shirt last season and in our away win at Wolverhampton Wanderers lasy weekend.
“As our new signing is allocated no.7, El Matador will switch to no. 21, the same number our prolific striker wears for the Uruguayan national team,” an official statement read.
Ronaldo is expected to make his second debut for United on September 11 against Newcastle.
