Cristiano Ronaldo will be able to wear his number 7 shirt after returning from Juventus Turin to Manchester United with the Red Devils. United officially announced this Thursday evening.
Since Ronaldo’s signing, there has been confusion among the English, with Edinson Cavani already registered as No. 7 for the 2021/22 Premier League season. Perhaps only with the exemption can it be achieved that the 36-year-old Portuguese take seventh place from Cavani.
The Uruguayan will now wear the number 21 on his back, which also appears with him in the national team.
Ronaldo always wore the No. 7 on his United debut from 2003 to 2009 and created the global brand CR7 during these years. Only in his first season at Real Madrid (2009/2010) the five-time world footballer was not 7, but 9.
United announced on Friday last week the return of the Portugal international Ronaldo to Manchester after three years at Juventus for 15 million euros plus eight million euros in bonuses. He could make his debut for the English record champion on September 11, when he meets Newcastle at Old Trafford.
