Manchester United confirm squad numbers of Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani


Manchester United have announced that Cristiano Ronaldo will be taking over the iconic No.7 shirt this season.

Ronaldo completed a sensational return to Old Trafford last Friday - after it initially appeared he was on his way to Manchester City - and fans have been itching to find out which number the 36-year-old superstar will be wearing, given Edinson Cavani occupied his favoured No.7.

There had been some reports suggesting Cavani was reluctant to simply step aside but it was confirmed this evening that the Uruguayan will be switching to the No.21 jersey, which he wears at international level.

The No.7 shirt is a special shirt for most clubs but especially at United, with the likes of George Best, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona and David Beckham donning it before Ronaldo.
