It was rumoured by Spanish outlet Marca that the Red Devils’ coach Jose Mourinho has been reserving the No.7 shirt for the Real Madrid icon, Christaino Ronaldo, who has been linked with a return to the club in recent times…
Jose Mourinho has however debunked all claims as he reportedly has no interest in signing Ronaldo after the transfer of Alexis Sanchez has been made complete.
Manchester United in its bid to move the Chilean attacker over to its side will pay around £35 million and he will be handed the No.7 shirt once the deal is complete.
The 29-year-old Sanchez is set to complete his move to Old Trafford and has already said his goodbyes as he might be undergoing the Manchester United medical today.
It is claimed that Sanchez’ arrival will deter any plans to re-sign the Portugal superstar (Ronaldo) even though Mourinho reportedly has no intentions of doing that.
Manchester United was congratulated by Pep Guardiola (Man City’s boss,) on their move for Sanchez after Manchester City was beaten by their Rivals. He said “I think he will go to United – congratulations for both of them… the players and their managers decide where they want to play, good luck!”
