Cristiano Ronaldo shirt number: Manchester United squad numbers available for famous No7

United confirmed on Friday afternoon that they have agreed a sensational deal for Ronaldo to return to the club, 12 years after leaving for Real Madrid.

United said the deal with Juventus was subject to the agreement of personal terms, visa and a medical.

Ronaldo has made the number seven shirt his own in the same way that No23 was Michael Jordan’s number, with the Portuguese forward building his brand around ‘CR7’.

However, Edinson Cavani currently occupies the famous squad number and on Sunday made his first appearance of the season wearing the number – dashing Ronaldo’s hopes of taking it.

The issue could resolve itself if Cavani were to end up leaving United, but that looks highly unlikely.

So, as things stand, the No7 is taken – as are the No9 (Anthony Martial) and No28 (Facundo Pellistri), the other two numbers he has worn in his career.

If Ronaldo is forced to do without the No7 jersey, he could currently take the following numbers: 12, 15, 24, 30, 31, 33, 35.
