A matter of jerseys
Manchester United fans will miss Ronaldoâ€™s presence if he leaves Old Trafford this summer. In these last two years, he has been a sensation and has brought glory to the famous number 7 shirt. But for some reason, the â€œking of the Theatre of Dreamsâ€ just doesnâ€™t want to continue his reign in England.
Consequently, a question has already been raised: who will wear the number 7 jersey?
There have been speculations that Portuguese young player Nani could be the next on the list since his style of play looks very much like Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s. But these are only suggestions. On the other hand, reports claim that the Red Devils want to sign Real Madridâ€™s Sneider. However, the player has snubbed Unitedâ€™s offer and it is very much a possibility that the Holland midfielder will not end going there this summer.
Perhaps Sir Alex Ferguson plans to make Sneider Ronaldoâ€™s successor. In Real Madrid, the Dutch carries Beckhamâ€™s number, the number 23 jersey. And apparently, he had a good season.
And what about Ronaldo himself? Skipper Raul Gonzalez already wears the number 7 jersey and if Sneider doesnâ€™t quit Real, he will still possess the number 23.
On July 7th, it will be interesting to know which number will be given to the Portuguese star if he indeed joins the Spanish giants.
Without â€œ7â€ inscribed on his shirt, will Ronaldo lose his power like Beckham did?
