What number will Ronaldo wear at Manchester United : No.7 Jersey?
Cristiano Ronaldo ever since he left Man United has gone out to some of the top leagues in Europe playing for some of the top teams and winning almost everything there is to win in professional level football. He has truly been recognized as one of the greatest to have ever played game, and now in the most amazing way, the king returns home, but he may not be allowed to claim the crown he previously left behind. The no.7 jersey may be out of the reach for him this time round, continue reading to find out why.
The no.7 jersey is currently worn by Edison Cavani at Man United and the problem arises because as per Premier League regulations, all respective clubs must assign jerseys to every one of its players before the season starts and as per the current situation, the no.7 jersey may not be given to Ronaldo whether Cavani agreed to do so nor even if United wanted to make the change.
This was the tweet posted by ESPN journalist Dale Johnson – “Premier League rule M.5 clearly states that Edinson Cavani must keep the No. 7 shirt for the whole season. If Cristiano Ronaldo wants the No. 7 shirt, Cavani must leave. Or United must get special dispensation from the PL board, which has never before been granted.” #mufc
What number will Ronaldo wear at Manchester United?
With Ronaldo unlikely to wear his usual no.7 jersey at Man United this season, it may seem be possible that he be made to wear the no.28 jersey, as he wore that particular jersey number at Sporting Lisbon in his early footballing days and he had initially opted to wear it in Man United as well. This speculation comes after Lionel Messi too had decided to wear the no.30 jersey for PSG, a number he had previously worn.
Though it is very unlikely, Ronaldo can get his no.7 jersey if Cavani was to leave United or the club made a proposal to the Premier League Authorities regarding the matter.
