Oct 7th 2020 – Manchester United, has confirmed that Edinson Cavani will wear the iconic number seven jersey.
Cavani completed his move to Manchester United, on the deadline day on a free transfer where he signed a one-year deal with an option for a further year at Old Trafford.
The player who is taking pride in wearing the jersey, promises to deliver at the club.
“Now I am going to prepare for this responsibility, do my best to be ready and enjoy it and I hope to make my mark at Manchester United. I want to give it my all here,” said Cavani.
The number seven shirt has had its own expectations after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo years back.
Former United players Memphis Depay, and Angel Di Maria, wore the jersey but did not meet the expectation set by Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham and legend Eric Cantona.
Pundits say Cavani provides another attacking option and he is more of a natural number nine than any other striker on United’s books with the exception of Mason Greenwood.
