Presently, the Red Devils have reported that the Uruguay forward will wear the well known ‘7’ during his time with Manchester United – a shirt that has been worn by some of Manchester United’s most celebrated players down the years.
George Best, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo and Eric Cantona have all worn the shirt at Old Trafford, albeit later wearers of the shirt have not enjoyed any accomplishment with the Premier League giants.
Memphis Depay, Angel Di Maria and Alexis Sanchez – the last of whom was the latest player to put on the number seven shirt at Manchester United – all suffered disappointing spells at Old Trafford.
The famous ‘7’ was supposedly going to be offered to Jadon Sancho initially, however the Borussia Dortmund man at last waited in Germany following an extended transfer saga.
