Cristiano Ronaldo Unlikely To Get No.7 Shirt In Manchester United Here Are Reasons!πŸ™…β€β™‚βš½

Cristiano Ronaldo will face hard time and a battle if he’s to reclaim his iconic No.7 shirt at Manchester United.

The Portuguese nationalist and footballer has decided to return home to the club at which he first became a global superstar. The deal was officially confirmed on Friday.

Immediately fans started pondering the question of his shirt number at the club, the immediate reaction was to assume he’d reclaim his famous old No.7.

However, this seems not to be so simple.

The Premier League rules state players must retain the shirt numbers they are registered under, unless they either depart or are granted β€˜special dispensation’.

Dale Johnson ESPN reporter pointed this out and added that such special dispensation has never been granted previously.

β€œSection M of the Premier League rulebook says that, while he remains with the club, a player will retain his shirt number throughout the season for which it was allocated” Sky reporter Dharmesh Sheth explained.

β€œThat means that [Ronaldo could not get No.7] unless Edinson Cavani leaves United or United apply for special dispensation from the Premier League board, which is highly unlikely.

β€œFor Ronaldo to have that Ni.7 shirt, United would need to come up with a really good reason.

β€œAs it is for now it’s not easy deal unless Edinson Cavani leaves Man United in the coming days, which we’re not expecting to happen, then Cristiano Ronaldo is unlikely to be wearing the No.7 after returning.”
