MANCHESTER UNITED ran out of No7s in their club shop – despite Cristiano Ronaldo thrashing out his own transfer exit talks.

The Manchester Evening News reported one young kid even asked his dad to get "Siiiu 7" for his kit – in reference to the famous Ronaldo celebration.

There were suggestions Ronaldo could be shipped out on loan with Atletico Madrid and Sporting Lisbon both linked – as long as he agreed to extend his Red Devils contract.
As revealed by SunSport, though, the forward wants out immediately and will demand he is allowed to quit the club.
