The Uruguayan has already received praises from Ronaldo for his gesture concerning the number 7
Man United landing Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo in same window only spelt one thing for Cavani and that’s giving up the number 7 jersey.
But one of the arriving players had more influence than the other and that was why Sancho never got the number 7.
Amid Ronaldo’s epic return to Old Trafford, Cavani already had in mind he was going to give up the number for another which happens to the number 21.
With 21 being his national team jersey number, the 34-year-old felt so comfortable switching and Ronaldo did show his gratitude for the player’s attitude.
“I wasn’t sure if it would be possible to have the number seven shirt again. So I would like to say a huge thank you to Edi [Cavani] for this incredible gesture,” Ronaldo said.
In addition to this, Cavani has broken the silence since handing over the number to Ronaldo, “It’s something I had to do for the team and for him,” Cavani said.
“He is a legend for the club and returning to that number 7 is something special I can not deny him.
“He has done so many things not everyone can do and I believe he will help the team win more games.”
