Manchester United fans have been provided a major update regarding Cristiano Ronaldo being given the number seven shirt.

It was announced on Friday evening that United had agreed terms with Juventus to bring Ronaldo back to Old Trafford.

His trademark number seven shirt is currently occupied by veteran striker Edinson Cavani and many have wondered if he’d be giving it up.

Jonathan Shrager has since revealed Cavani will be keeping the number seven shirt he made his own last season.

The Uruguay international arrived as a free agent on deadline day and many were unsure if he’d be up to scratch.

His final few months at Paris Saint-Germain were spent on the bench and he didn’t play a competitive game for seven months.

Cavani immediately connected with United fans however and he scored 17 goals in 35 appearances.

It means Ronaldo could now take the number 28 shirt, what he requested when he first arrived at Old Trafford in 2003.

He was denied that however and given the number seven after David Beckham’s move to Real Madrid.

Ronaldo has since worn the number seven every season bar one, when he wore the number nine at Real Madrid.

He then took the seven following club legend Raul’s departure.

United have kept tight-lipped regarding the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s number and didn’t hint at it in their official statement.
