Alejandro Garnacho could be handed iconic No 7 shirt at Man Utd as two website 'clues' spotted

Alejandro Garnacho could be handed iconic No 7 shirt at Man Utd as two website 'clues' spotted

Man Utd have dropped a huge hint ahead of next season.

Manchester United have dropped a huge hint on who will be handed the club’s iconic No.7 shirt next season.

The Old Trafford club have joined forces with Adidas to unveil their home kit for the upcoming campaign.

The traditional red home strip features black details across the shoulders and a red, white and black striped flat-knit crew neck collar.

Furthermore, the design features the red rose of Lancaster, in homage to the city’s county, Lancashire, while the kit also draws inspiration from the bridge over the River Irwell, which connects Manchester and Salford.

And as the club launched the new strip, the club website dropped a hint about which player would inherit the No.7 shirt from Cristiano Ronaldo.

The iconic number was vacated by Ronaldo in November after the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s acrimonious departure from the club.

Man Utd No.7 hint

With the kit now on sale, United’s website gives fans the option to add the name and number of their favourite player at the back of the shirt.

However, the United website warned fans that numbers could change ahead of the season, including the No.7 shirt, which has been without an owner for seven months.

Meanwhile, ‘Garnacho 49’ is not currently a pre-loaded option available for supporters to select, hinting that he might not be wearing the No.49 shirt next term.

Indeed, the suggestion Garnacho could be handed the No.7 shirt was corroborated by a Manchester Evening News report last week, which claimed the Old Trafford club were considering handing the 18-year-old the famous number.

If that were to be the case Garnacho would become the first teenager to wear the No.7 shirt since Ronaldo in 2003. The Argentina international, who finished last season with six goals and six assists, signed a five-year contract in April.

Should Garnacho’s promising performances be awarded the No.7 shirt, he would be following in the footsteps of the likes of some of United’s greatest players, including George Best, Eric Cantona and David Beckham.
