Who wears number 7 for Manchester United in 2021?
Who wears number 7 for Manchester United? That is a question on the minds of every football fan ever since Man United announced the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo. It is a number entrenched with history, and we look at who currently dons that jersey at the club.
Who wears number 7 for Manchester United?
The number 7 kit has been worn by some of Man United’s greatest players. Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham, and ahem ahem… Alexis Sanchez… have all worn the prestigious number in the past few decades. But that number is perhaps made iconic by just one man at Old Trafford- Cristiano Ronaldo.
In the 6 years he spent at the club, he left for Real Madrid having started the search for the biggest boots, and jersey, to fill in the history of the sport. Surprisingly, it was Michael Owen, one of the biggest flop signings in the club’s recent history, who took on that jersey.
Since then, Antonio Valencia, Angel di Maria, Memphis Depay, and Sanchez have worn it. Currently, the no 7 jersey is worn by Edinson Cavani since last summer. He has extended his contract at the club and will stay until at least the summer of 2022.

There is nothing certain on what will happen to the kit number. One thing is for certain, the jersey is one of the most celebrated shirts in the sport and after a string of undeserving owners, United found a worthy owner in Cavani.
The Uruguayan old-timer was very impressive last season and scored some important goals. His stature and ability makes him a worthy owner of the shirt and fans won’t mind if he holds onto the kit until next summer, after which he will surely leave.
There is also another tussle for kit numbers with Bruno Fernandes, wearing 18, who has eyes on Juan Mata’s number 8 kit. We will see how these internal rivalries for the kit number pan out but its the least United fans will care about if their team keeps winning on the pitch.
