CR7: Cristiano Ronaldo takes over Man United no 7 shirt

Cristiano Ronaldo has taken over Manchester United’s iconic number seven shirt from Uruguayan striker Edison Cavani.

United announced the number swap in a statement on their official website on Thursday, saying their new signing will don his preferred jersey.

“Manchester United can confirm that Cristiano Ronaldo will wear the iconic no.7 shirt after returning to Old Trafford,” United announced.

“The Portuguese superstar famously wore the legendary shirt number during his first spell with the club and we can confirm that Cristiano will have it on his back once again.

“In his first six seasons at the club, between 2003 and 2009, Ronaldo made 292 appearances and scored 118 goals, winning nine trophies including three Premier League titles and the UEFA Champions League.

“As we all know, the no.7 is a special shirt in the history of United.

“It has previously been worn by club icons like George Best, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona and David Beckham. Now, it returns to the man who succeeded Beckham in it, Ronaldo.

“Ronaldo inherits the number from Edinson Cavani, who wore the shirt last season and in our away win at Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend.

“As our new signing is allocated no.7, El Matador will switch to no.21, the same number our prolific striker wears for the Uruguayan national team.

“United’s first fixture after the international break, in which Ronaldo could make his second debut, is at home to Newcastle United on Saturday 11 September.

“We’re all excited to see our returning no.7 in action at the Theatre of Dreams again.”
