He has his jersey number!
Cristiano Ronaldo (36) also gets his “7” at Manchester United.
The English record champions announced it on Instagram, “It must be seven.”
For the past few years the CR7 has had the number in Jua and Real Madrid – and for the first time in Manchester (2003 to 2009). At United, the number was taken from team-mate Edinson Cavani (34), who the Portuguese scored “21”. The Uruguayan can quickly become friends with his new number, after all, he wears it on the national team as well.
“I’m not sure if I’ll get the number seven shirt again,” Ronaldo said. “A big thank you to Eddie (Kawani) for this great gesture.”
The jersey with the seven is very important at Old Trafford. Club greats such as George Best, Brian Robson, Eric Cantona and David Beckham also wore the shirt number. The 2016 European champions can play their first match for United on 11 September in Newcastle against United.
