Ronaldo arrives at United
Cristiano Ronaldo’s return from Juventus to Manchester United has shocked the football world. The player is returning to United after a gap of 12 years, making Ronaldo a world – class player.
Ronaldo is known around the world as CR7. Ronaldo, who wears only the number seven jersey, was first given this number by Manchester United. Ronaldo even developed the name CR7 while playing for United. Ronaldo, who is returning home, may not get the number seven jersey. The rules of the English Premier League will be a setback for the player.
The jersey is currently being worn by United striker Edinson Cavani. The law does not allow Cavani to give that number to another player while he is in the team. Even if United tries to do so, Premier League rules will backfire. Fans were furious when they were informed that Ronaldo would not receive the number seven jersey. Fans say that Ronaldo cannot be seen at Old Trafford except in the number seven jersey.
Cavanagh will have to leave the team this season if Ronaldo is to get the number. In the current situation, it is less likely. Because the transfer market will close soon. Cavani, who still has a contract with United, is likely to remain in the squad this season.
In that case, Ronaldo will not get the number seven jersey. Instead, the player will choose the number 28 jersey. This is the jersey number the player wore at Sporting Lisbon, where he started his football career.
