Manchester United Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo has announced that when he returns from the Italian Juventus to the Theater of Dreams, he will be wearing the 7th shirt that was already on his first stop with the “Red Devils”. The most important United stars throughout history.
“Manchester United want to make sure Cristiano Ronaldo wears the iconic No. 7 shirt when he returns to Old Trafford,” the club said in a statement.
In the six seasons he spent at the club between 2003 and 2009, Ronaldo played in 292 matches, scored 118 goals and won nine titles, including three titles in the English Premier League and the Champions League.
Ronaldo (36), the best player in the world, wore this number and, after David Beckham, was transferred to Real Madrid, surpassing the same number of club legends as Northern Irishman George Best, Brian Robson and Frenchman Eric Condona.

After being worn for the first time for the first time against Wolverhampton last week, the number will be sent to Ronaldo from the Uruguayan Edison attention.
The Uruguayan star will now wear the No. 21 shirt, a joint statement said.
United fans are looking forward to the opportunity to participate for the first time since Ronaldo’s return on September 11 against Newcastle in the local league.
