Former Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo is set to return to Old Trafford. Manchester City was reportedly the favorite to sign the Portuguese international after he made it clear that he wanted to leave the Italian club.
However, Manchester United moved quickly and hijacked the transfer as the negotiation is currently ongoing. A trusted transfer journalist who goes by the name Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Juventus has just received an official bid from Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo.
He also said that Paul Pogba is not included in any deal, and Manchester City has backed off the deal. Manchester United are currently in pole position. Having known this, we will now look at what Jersey number Ronaldo could wear.
Ronaldo has previously worn Jersey No 9 and No 7 throughout his career, but these shirts are now occupied by Martial and Cavani respectively.
Ronaldo could now settle for No 12, which is the lowest number that is currently available in Manchester United.
