United squad numbers up for grabs this summer

Monday 26 June 2023 20:00

Manchester United fans who are excitedly waiting for the club's new 2023/24 adidas kits to go on sale are being reminded of the potential for players’ numbers to change before the start of the season.

The home strip will be launched at 09:00 BST this Tuesday, 27 June, when it will be available to buy online via United Direct (store.manutd.com) or in person from the Megastore at Old Trafford.

As usual, there will be the option to have your new shirt emblazoned with the name and number of your choice – but fans are urged to be aware that some players may change numbers before the start of the season.

There are several prominent numbers open for existing players or new signings to adopt, including the iconic number 7 vacated last year by Cristiano Ronaldo.  

The departure of central defender Phil Jones means that his number 4 shirt will also be available for the first time in 12 seasons.

Other open numbers include 24, as well as Axel Tuanzebe’s 38 and Zidane Iqbal’s 55 following their departures.

Fans are reminded that shirt refunds or exchanges are not permitted in the event of buying a shirt with a player’s number that subsequently changes.
