Official: Man Utd Unveil Ronaldo Shirt Number
Manchester United have finally confirmed the new shirt number of Cristiano Ronaldo following his blockbuster return to Old Trafford.
United had unveiled Ronaldo without confirming his shirt number but have now confirmed that he will don the Nr. 7 shirt once again.
The number was initially worn by Edinson Cavani but the Uruguayan switched to Nr. 21 after it became vacant following Daniel James’ transfer to Leeds United.
As a consequence, Ronaldo could return to his favoured Nr. 7 which he had already worn during his first spell at Old Trafford after being handed the historic number by Sir Alex Ferguson.
Cavani, Alexis Sanchez, Memphis Depay, Angel Di Maria, Antonio Valencia and Michael Owen have all worn the Nr. 7 at the club since Ronaldo left but none of them managed to fill the boots left by the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
