Man Utd summer signing Edinson Cavani has been given the No.7 shirt following his deadline day transfer to Old Trafford.

Edinson Cavani says he is fully focused on justifying the 'responsibility' of being handed the iconic No.7 shirt at Manchester United.

Cavani was one of five summer arrivals at United after he completed a free transfer on deadline day earlier this week. The 33-year-old was released by Paris Saint-Germain earlier this summer before signing a one-year deal with the option for a further 12 months at Old Trafford.

United confirmed on Tuesday night Cavani will wear the iconic No.7 jersey during his first season at the club, a number he wore at former clubs Palermo and Napoli as well as on occasions for the Uruguayan national team.

The iconic shirt number was effectively reserved for priority target Jadon Sancho if he were to join in the summer after being vacated by Alexis Sanchez following his permanent transfer to Inter Milan.

United's No.7 shirt is arguably the most iconic shirt number in European football having previously been worn by club legends like George Best, Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo.

In recent years the number has become synonymous with failure at United after the dismal spells of Angel di Maria, Memphis Depay and Sanchez. However, Cavani is hoping to restore some pride into the iconic jersey this season.

"It will give me great pride to wear the No 7 shirt for Manchester United," Cavani told  ESPN Argentina's 90 Minutes.  "Now I am going to prepare for this responsibility, do my best to be ready and enjoy it and I hope to make my mark at Manchester United.

"I have two years of a contract with Manchester United. I want to give it my all here. I feel good."
