Ronaldo will wear the No. 7 shirt at Man Utd



Cristiano Ronaldo will wear Manchester United’s iconic number seven again when Edinson Cavani agrees to surrender his shirt.

Ronaldo finished seventh on the long list of United legends during his first spell with United from 2003 to 2009.

The 36-year-old joined United from Juventus last week, but Cavani was seventh at the start of the season, making Ronaldo more likely to wear a different shirt.

But Cavani has agreed to exchange 21 – the veteran striker who wears for Uruguay – so that Ronaldo can regain his old jersey.

It was reported that a club would need special dispensation from the Premier League to take action on the switch after the start of the domestic campaign.

“Manchester United can confirm that Cristiano Ronaldo will wear the No. 7 shirt when he returns to Old Trafford,” the club said on its website.

In his first round with United after signing from Sporting Lisbon, Ronaldo scored 118 goals and won nine trophies, including three Premier League titles and the UEFA Champions League.

Ronaldo, who left United for Real Madrid 12 years ago, is set to make his second Premier League debut against Newcastle on September 11.

George Best, Brian Robson, Eric Cantona and David Beckham are among the other United stars who have worn the famous number seven.

On Wednesday, Ronaldo broke the men’s international scoring record with a late double as Portugal came from behind to beat the Republic of Ireland 2-1.
