Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri have been allocated their shirt numbers, following their deadline-day moves to Manchester United.

After Edinson Cavani was confirmed as wearing no.7 on Tuesday night, Brazilian full-back Telles has been handed no.27 with Uruguayan winger Pellistri given no.28.


Marouane Fellaini was the last man to wear no.27, with others to use it including Terry Cooke, Federico Macheda, Gary Neville and Mikael Silvestre.

Telles has predominantly had no.13 in his career, although he was no.12 during his time in Italy with Internazionale.

Youngster Pellistri, who was no.10 at Penarol, follows in the footsteps of the likes of Anderson, Alex Buttner, Darron Gibson, Angel Gomes, Danny Higginbotham, Phil Neville and Gerard Pique.

The no.28 was also the first shirt David Beckham was given when he broke into the first team.
