Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to Manchester United after 12 years. He has also won the Champions League, the English Premier League and the Ballon d'Or for the club. It was from this club that Ronaldo became the famous 'CR7'. However, Ronaldo may not be seen in the number 6 jersey even if he returns to Manchester United.
According to the rules of the English Premier League, a player must end the season in the number of jerseys in which he starts the league. Uruguayan star Edinson Cavani has already played in the Premier League for Manchester United in the No. 7 jersey.
The M5 rules of the Premier League state that a player must wear a number throughout the season. However, if a player changes teams in the middle of the league, then someone from the old club can wear his number jersey.
So if Ronaldo is to wear the number 7 jersey this season, Cavani will have to leave the club. There is another way open in front of ManU. Ronaldo can get the number 7 jersey if he can get special permission from the authorities of the Premier League.
The number of jerseys to be worn in Spanish La Liga is finalized at the end of August, but in the Premier League it is decided at the beginning of the season. So there is an obstacle to wear Ronaldo's number 7 jersey.
Although he could not in the Premier League, Ronaldo is not barred from wearing the number 7 jersey in the Champions League. In that case, it is a matter of wondering whether ManU will wear two types of jerseys for the two tournaments.
Gold.com says that no one is wearing the jerseys numbered 12, 15, 24, 30, 31, 33 and 35 in Manchester now. Ronaldo will have to choose from there. But in the end, it remains to be seen how many jerseys Ronaldo wears at Manchester United.
