EDINSON CAVANI could wear Manchester United's famed No7 shirt if his move to Old Trafford is confirmed.
The 33-year-old has been a free agent since his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired in June.
Reports suggest Cavani is undergoing a medical in Manchester today and will sign a two-year deal with United worth a reported £200,000-a-week.
The transfer could also see the Red Devils pay up to £9million in agents' fees.
Ahead of the Uruguayan's imminent move to United, we take a look at the shirt numbers he could take at Old Trafford.
Cavani could take United's fabled No7 shirt, as worn by United legends like George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Uruguayan has previously worn the shirt for his country as well as former clubs Palermo and Napoli.
United seemed content to leave the shirt vacant this summer, hopeful it would soon be occupied by Jadon Sancho.
But with Sancho staying at Borussia Dortmund this season, the No7 shirt remains untouched.
In fact, no one has worn the shirt since Alexis Sanchez left United for Inter Milan.
Sanchez is just one of a number of cautionary tales which could lead Cavani to snub the No7.
Angel Di Maria and Memphis Depay both arrived in Manchester with big expectations and price tags which they were unable to live up to in the No7 shirt.
Superstitious Antonio Valencia even opted to switch back to his original No25 shirt after just one season in the No7, having felt the weight of the shirt after a loss of form.
Other notable wearers include Michael Owen and Andreas Kanchelskis.
Marcus Rashford was the last to wear United's No19 shirt, vacating the number in 2018 to take the No10 Jersey.
Other notable wearers include United treble winner Dwight Yorke.
United's No 27 shirt has remained vacant since the departure of Marouane Fellaini in January 2019.
Last to wear the No28 shirt was academy graduate Angel Gomes, who left the club for Lille this summer.
Other notable wearers include Morgan Schneiderlin, Anderson and David Beckham.
Cavani's compatriot Guillermo Varela was the last wearer of the No30 shirt.
