Man United’might have found a Premier League solution’ to give Cristiano Ronaldo the number seven shirt.
Edinson Cavani is currently wearing the Manchester United No. 7 shirt that Cristiano Ronaldo made famous.
According to rumours, Manchester United may have found a way to give Cristiano Ronaldo his historic No 7 shirt upon his return to Old Trafford. On Friday, the Red Devils announced that they had reached an agreement to bring Ronaldo back to the club, capping up a fantastic 24 hours.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
Ronaldo appeared to be on his way to Manchester City, United’s bitter rivals, on Thursday evening, with reports claiming the Premier League winners were close to completing a deal.
The 36-year-old has opted to leave Juventus in search of a fresh challenge. City appeared to be the sole club chasing Ronaldo until Friday afternoon, when they backed out of the contest.
Later that day, United revealed their agreement with Ronaldo.
The focus has since shifted to Ronaldo’s squad number when he returns to Old Trafford. Edinson Cavani, a striker, will wear his famed No 7 shirt.
Despite the fact that the Premier League wrongly listed both players as United’s No 7, the league’s rules say that Cavani must depart the club before Ronaldo can receive the digit.
It is possible to request special dispensation for a change, although the Premier League has never done so before.
According to journalist Jonathan Shrager, a’solution’ between Ronaldo, Cavani, and the Premier League may have been reached for the former Real Madrid star to land No 7.
After the international break, Ronaldo might choose for a different number for his second United debut when the club hosts Newcastle United.
Now that Facundo Pellistri has joined Alaves on loan, he can wear the number 28 that he wore at Sporting Lisbon. When he first joined the club in 2003, the Portugal legend requested No 28 but was given No 7 by Sir Alex Ferguson.
Because of the extensive list of United icons who had previously worn the number, Ronaldo recalls being “petrified” of the shirt.
“I requested for 28 when I got at United, but the coach told, ‘No, you will wear.’Brinkwire Summary News”.
