Ronaldo jersey breaks sales records soon after no.7 announcement

September 6, 2021

Manchester United fans queued in their droves on Sunday morning to get their hands on a Cristiano Ronaldo No7 shirt.
The excitement is still at fever pitch after the 36 year old completed a sensational return to Old Trafford.
This is just in a matter of hours after the No.7 shirt went on sale and Manchester United have had the biggest day of online sales ever on a single sports merchandise site outside of North America.
Following Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford, there was one question mark over the Portuguese’s move; the shirt number the forward would wear at Old Trafford.
Edinson Cavani had occupied the famous no.7 shirt that Ronaldo donned for six years during his first stay at United and it was unclear if the Uruguayan would be willing to give it up or if the Premier League would provide special dispensation for United to switch numbers.
The Premier League, however, granted United’s special request and Ronaldo was granted his wish.
The club has since heavily promoted the no.7 shirt with fans queuing outside Old Trafford to get their hands on a shirt with Ronaldo’s name on the back.
