United are interested in bringing in a number of new signings this summer, but what shirt numbers will they be able to claim as their own?


A second-place finish in the Premier League shows that Manchester United were more consistent under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season than they were during the previous campaign.

Yet their failure to clinch a trophy - especially after being strong favourites to win the Europa League final in Gdansk - casts a shadow over that progress and has left fans feeling disappointed once again.

Solskjaer has stated that he hopes to welcome two or three additions before the start of the 2021/22 campaign. The club ideally needs reinforcements at centre-back, an additional defensive midfield player, a winger and a long-term replacement for Edinson Cavani, but that level of recruitment may be difficult in a post-pandemic world.

Nevertheless, with the likes of Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Declan Rice high up on United's wish list, those players will need squad numbers if they move to United - but which ones are currently up for grabs?

Defenders

Most of the truly traditional defensive numbers are presently unavailable. However, club legend Nemanja Vidic did wear 15 for a long time and that shirt is there for the taking.

Phil Jones could also be on his way out of the club. The centre-half hasn’t featured since January 2020 and could end his ten-year spell at United this summer, with Newcastle and West Ham interested in signing him.

The MEN understands United are in talks with Varane’s representatives. His favoured number five shirt is currently occupied by club captain Harry Maguire, so if the Frenchman does sign, Jones’ number four may be the next-best option.

Midfielders

There are a few more options across the midfield, particularly if Juan Mata decides to leave the club, as he would release the number eight.

Perhaps the most favourable of those is the 16 shirt, previously worn by Roy Keane and Michael Carrick. That number certainly suits a holding midfield player but Scott McTominay, who has been an integral first-team member at United in recent seasons, could decide to make the switch first.

Forwards

Perhaps the most noticeable striker’s shirt is the number 14.

Worn by cult-hero Chicharito for much of the last decade, it’s a number that’s been associated with scoring goals in the Premier League for quite a while now.

There are other options, including the number 12, but the 14 stands out as the best available for any new frontman.
