After moving to Old Trafford, it looks like Casemiro won’t be able to choose the number he’s worn for Real Madrid for the past seven years. Christian Eriksen, who is also new to Man United, wears the No. 14 shirt.
Casemiro’s number on the Brazilian national team is also not available: Harry Maguire wears the No. 5 short.
So, what numbers are open for the famous signing? Here are some ideas.
This shirt has been worn by backup goalkeepers like Lee Grant, Anders Lindegaard, and Park Ji-sung.
Andreas Pereira was the last Man United player to wear this shirt. Before that, Adnan Januzaj, Daley Blind, and, most importantly, Nemanja Vidic all had it.
This shirt number is kind of famous at United because both Paul Scholes and Ashley Young wore it for a long time. Bruno Fernandes is now wearing the No. 8 shirt, but some of his best games were when he wore this number.
Since Edinson Cavani left Old Trafford, this number is no longer in use.
The last big-name Man United player to wear this shirt was Darren Fletcher.
