Back at Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo obviously had some requirements …
The countdown begins. More than twelve years after his last match with Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo is preparing to find the Mancunian jersey. International truce obliges, it will nevertheless be necessary to wait until September 11 and the reception of Newcastle to see the five-time Golden Ball wearing the uniform of the Red Devils. And one of the main questions concerning this return is about to be lifted: it is with the number 7 on the back that the Portuguese will officiate.
The doubt was necessarily allowed since the mythical n ° 7, previously worn by George Best or Eric Cantona, had been the property for two years ofEdinson Cavani. But faced with the insistence of the native of Funchal, determined to remain CR7, a set of musical chairs should allow the former Turinese to recover his property while sparing the susceptibility of his new teammate. Leaving for Leeds, midfielder Daniel James should indeed release the No. 21 dear to the Uruguayan since it is the number he wears with the Celeste.
If Manchester United, which still has not shown the face of Cristiano Ronaldo on its official website, still maintains the suspense, the Premier League has removed the remaining doubts. It is indeed with the n ° 7 that Cristiano Ronaldo already appears on the site of the English championship.
