Ronaldo gets famous number seven shirt back at Man Utd

Manchester United have affirmed Cristiano Ronaldo will wear the number seven shirt for the 2021-22 season. 

Ronaldo, who broke Ali #Daei's long-standing record of worldwide objectives with a twofold for Portugal against the Republic of Ireland on Wednesday, re-joined United in an electrifying exchange from Juventus toward the finish of the exchange window. 

The hotshot forward, who on Thursday was delivered from global obligation, wore United's notable number seven during his first stretch at Old Trafford, which finished in 2009. 

He wore the number nine during his first season at Madrid, prior to taking the number seven shirt after club legend Raul left for Schalke in 2010. 

Ronaldo has since worn the number seven in each season for both Madrid and Juventus, just as for Portugal. 

Nonetheless, there was some uncertainty about whether he would have the option to take the seven shirt upon his re-visitation of Manchester, with United having effectively affirmed their crew numbers for the forthcoming effort. 

#Edinson #Cavani recently wore the number, and the Uruguay forward showed up of the period against Wolves last break. 

Reports recommended United would look for uncommon regulation from the Premier League to adjust their crew numbers, notwithstanding, and Ronaldo has now been given the well known number recently worn by greats like George Best, Eric #Cantona and David Beckham, and he expresses gratitude toward #Cavani for allowing him to take it. 

"I didn't know whether it is feasible to have the number seven shirt once more, so I might want to say a tremendous thank you to Edi for this mind blowing motion," Ronaldo said in an Instagram post. 

Thusly, #Cavani has taken the number 21 shirt, which was emptied by Daniel James when he finished a transition to Leeds United on Tuesday. 

He has worn the 21 shirt for Uruguay since 2010-11.
