DisclosureCristiano will again wear the 7 shirt at Manchester United

O Manchester United announced this Thursday, 2, that the striker Cristiano Ronaldo will wear the legendary 7 shirt on his return to the club after 12 years. In addition to being the number with which the Portuguese was consecrated in the first passage, between 2003 and 2009, other great idols of the Red Devils, such as George Best, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona e David Beckham, also wore the shirt. The communiqué from the English board, in this way, ends the doubt that hovered at Old Trafford. This is because the Uruguayan Edinson Cavani had been entered with the 7th in the Premier League this season, as well as last. The exchange could thus be vetoed by the Premier League, responsible for managing the league.

In a publication on United’s social networks, Cristiano Ronaldo also thanked Cavani for giving up the number. “I wasn’t sure if it would be possible to wear the number 7 on the shirt again. So, I would like to thank you very much, Edi, for this incredible gesture”, said the Portuguese. The striker’s debut should take place after the FIFA Date, on September 11, at United’s home, in Manchester, against Newcastle, for the fifth round of the English.
