Ronaldo’s blockbuster return to Old Trafford from Juventus was one of the biggest stories of the summer transfer window.

Man Utd can confirm that Ronaldo will wear the iconic no.7 jersey

Manchester United have revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo will put on his favourite No. 7 shirt for the 2021-22 Premier League season. Ronaldo’s blockbuster return to Old Trafford from Juventus was one of the biggest stories of the summer transfer window. And the club have now unveiled his new shirt, inherited from Edinson Cavani, who switches to 21, as he awaits a second ‘debut’ with the Red Devils. “Manchester United can confirm that Cristiano Ronaldo will wear the iconic no.7 shirt after returning to Old Trafford,” the club explained in a statement published on its official website. “The Portuguese superstar famously wore the legendary shirt number during his first spell at United, and we can now confirm that Ronaldo will have it on his back once again.

Attention will now turn to when Cristiano will retake the pitch for Man United

“In his first six seasons at the club, between 2003 and 2009, Ronaldo made 292 appearances and scored 118 goals, winning nine trophies including three Premier League titles and the UEFA Champions League. As we all know, the no. 7 is a special number in the history of Man United. It has previously been worn by club icons like George Best, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona and David Beckham. Now, it returns to the man who succeeded Beckham in it, Ronaldo. Ronaldo inherits the number from Edinson Cavani, who wore the shirt last season and in our away win at Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend. As our new signing is allocated no.7, El Matador will switch to no.21, the same number our prolific striker wears for the Uruguayan national team.” Now his number has been confirmed; attention will now turn to when Ronaldo will retake the field for United.

While he made just one short cameo at club level so far in 2020-21, coming off the bench in Juventus’ Serie A opener, Wednesday’s two-goal turn against Ireland for Portugal showed that there are no doubts over the 36-year-old’s fitness. Furthermore, the striker has secured an early release from international duty. He is suspended for Portugal’s next World Cup qualifier against Azerbaijan, heightening hopes that the first match of this second spell will come sooner rather than later. “United’s first fixture after the international break, in which Ronaldo could make his return to Old Trafford, is at home to Newcastle United on Saturday 11 September,” the club added. “We are all excited to see our returning no. 7 in action at the Theatre of Dreams once again.”
