Manchester United have confirmed the squad number for latest arrivals Lisandro Martinez and Christian Eriksen.
Formerly of Paul Pogba, Martinez will don the no.6 shirt for United next season.
It was also worn by one of United's best ever defenders Jaap Stam, who came from the Eredivisie to come to the club.
Jaap Stam is considered a legend at the club by many. Martinez can only hope he could have a similar impact at Old Trafford.
The new signing is not completely new to the number, however.
He wore it whilst in Argentina with Defensa y Justicia, along with the no.24.
Meanwhile, Eriksen will take over the no.14 at the club, which was sported by Jesse Lingard until his departure this summer.
The Denmark international has worn the likes of no.8, no.23 and no.21 at previous clubs.
Other well-known Reds who have donned his new shirt include Javier Hernandez and Jordi Cruyff.
When will United fans see them in action?
It could be very soon that the pair make their unofficial bow in front of supporters.
Martinez and Eriksen did play in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Carrington on Wednesday, where United beat Wrexham 4-1, with the Denmark international scoring a free-kick, but they'll be looking forward to seeing the fans and showing them what they can do.
A new defender would've been on many fans' wish lists this summer. The Argentine's ability on the ball will be of great use to Ten Hag.
Meanwhile, depth in midfield was a must following the many midfield departures this summer, but Eriksen could take a larger role than a squad player.
With Atletico Madrid around the corner on Saturday, The two new signings could have their first minutes in front of the crowd in Oslo, in one of United's biggest tests of pre-season thus far.
If that is not the case, then we could see the manager use his new signings alongside some younger talent at Old Trafford on Sunday ahead of the Premier League opener, which is in less than two weeks.
What they've said?
"I’m really happy to be here, in this amazing club. Yeah, I’m really happy." Martinez told the club website.
"Manchester United I think is one of the best clubs in the world. Every player wants to play here. The opportunity was there, so I took it and now I’m really happy to be here.
I think the Premier League is the best league in the world. It’s really intensive, it’s very difficult, very physical also. Every game, I really want to watch.”
Meanwhile, Christian Eriksen said: “I never thought it would actually happen, so to be here, like you say being a Manchester United player, it’s very special.
“I was thinking my time to go to Manchester United was before! Obviously, then I was at Spurs, and then went to Italy.
“But now to sit here is definitely something that I didn’t expect, but I'm also very happy that I’m here. It feels good, it feels good to be here.”
