Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to Manchester United after 12 years. He has won the Champions League, the English Premier League, and the Ballon d’Or for the club. Manchester United is the club where Ronaldo became the famous ‘CR7’. However, Ronaldo may not be seen in the number 7 jersey even if he returns to Manchester United.
According to the rules of the English Premier League, a player must end the season in the number of jerseys in which he starts the league. Uruguayan star Edinson Cavani has already played in the Premier League for Manchester United in the No. 7 jersey.
What will be Ronaldo Jersey Number at Man United?
The M5 rules of the Premier League state that a player must wear the same jersey number throughout the season. However, if a player changes teams in the middle of the league, then someone from the old club can wear his number jersey. So if Ronaldo is to wear the number 7 jersey this season, Cavani will have to leave the club. There is another way open in front of ManU. Ronaldo can get the number 7 jersey if he can get special permission from the authorities of the Premier League.
What does Man United have to do now for Ronaldo jersey number?
The number of jerseys to be worn in Spanish La Liga is finalized at the end of August, but in the Premier League, it is decided at the beginning of the season. So there is an obstacle to wear Ronaldo’s number 7 jersey. Although he could not be in the Premier League, Ronaldo is not barred from wearing the number 7 jersey in the Champions League. In that case, it is a matter of wondering whether ManU will wear two types of jerseys for the two tournaments.
Ronaldo played for Sporting Lisbon wearing the number 27 jersey. He played in the number 9 jersey in his first year at Real Madrid. Gold.com says that no one is wearing the jerseys numbered 12, 15, 24, 30, 31, 33, and 35 in Manchester now. Ronaldo will have to choose from there. But in the end, it remains to be seen which jersey number Ronaldo wears at Manchester United.
