The Premier League appear to have confirmed Cristiano Ronaldo’s new squad number at Manchester United — but all might not be as it seems.

Ronaldo, 36, re-signed for United on Friday in a sensational move after all indications looked like he was set to join rivals Manchester City.

However, United made their move late, and successfully persuaded Ronaldo to return to the club where he made his name between 2003-2009 before moving to Real Madrid.

The Portuguese has, of course, risen to become one of the game’s greatest ever players, winning everything with Real Madrid and proving he can perform in Italy with a successful spell at Juventus.

At United, he became synonymous with the No.7, and he mostly wore that squad number at the Bernabeu too. He kept the iconic number at Juventus, but Edinson Cavani currently occupies the shirt United so Ronaldo may be forced to pick a different number.

According to the Premier League website, however, Ronaldo has already been added to the United squad and is recorded as being given the no.7 again in the squad.

That prospect is likely to excite fans, who see the number as a huge part of Ronaldo’s history at United.

However, since the number is already assigned to Cavani, he can’t wear seven, as the Premier League season has already begun and swaps between players during the campaign are against the rules — unless Cavani leaves or the League grant special dispensation for the first time ever.

A more likely explanation is that Ronaldo was listed along with his former No.7 the last time he was at United, and that has been mistakenly kept on his online profile for the Premier League website. It’s also worth noting that Cavani remains as No.7 on the same squad page.

Ronaldo could make his second United debut against Newcastle after the international break.
