It looks like Casemiro won’t be able to pick the number he’s worn for Real Madrid over the past seven years after moving to Old Trafford. The No.14 shirt is occupied by another Man United newcomer, Christian Eriksen.
Casemiro’s number at the Brazilian national team is not available either: the No.5 short is worn by Harry Maguire.
So, which numbers are available for the high-profile signing? Here are a few options.
This shirt has been previously worn by reserve goalkeepers like Anders Lindegaard and Lee Grant – but also Park Ji-sung.
The last Man United player to wear this jersey was Andreas Pereira. Before that, it belonged to Adnan Januzaj, Daley Blind and. most importantly, Nemanja Vidic.
A low-key iconic number at United, as this shirt was worn for many years by both Paul Scholes and Ashley Young. Bruno Fernandes, who has switched to the No.8 shirt, had some of his best performances under this number, too.
This number is vacant after Edinson Cavani left Old Trafford.
Darren Fletcher was the last prominent Man United player to feature in this shirt.
