The doubt: Will Cavani yield the 7 to Cristiano?

One of the doubts that already assail the followers of Cristiano Ronaldo, who has the CR7 trademark registered, is whether the Uruguayan Edinson Cavani will give him number 7, which he assumed last season, after signing for Manchester United.

When Cristiano Ronaldo left Sporting to sign for United in 2003, he assumed the number 7, but, after signing for Real Madrid in 2009, the Portuguese wore the number 9, since Raúl was the owner of the number 7 he had inherited by Emilio Butragueño when we have the information.

However, in the following season, after the departure of Raúl, Cristiano wore the number 7 again, the same one that he carried on his back during the two seasons at Juventus.
