Will the Manchester United divinity change his shirt number?
The British media “Express” reported on the 13th that “Mason Greenwood could leave Manchester United. If so, Alejandro Garnacho could take over the number 11 shirt. He deserves it.”
“While not as iconic as the number 7, United’s number 11 is rather special. It was worn by the legendary Ryan Giggs.”
“Anthony wore the number 11 at Ajax before coming to United, so he’ll be coveted. However, given his potential and impressive form last season, Garnacho is a better fit.”
Greenwood has been under police investigation for alleged sexual offenses. A woman, allegedly his girlfriend, posted photos and videos on social media 토토꽁포인트 claiming she was sexually assaulted by him.
Greenwood was subsequently arrested and questioned by police. The club suspended him from training and matches until the case was resolved.
Greenwood was recently found not guilty by a court after the charges were dropped. This allows him to return to the club.
However, the strong sentiment against the inclusion of players with criminal charges has left the club in a quandary and they have reportedly considered selling him.
If Greenwood leaves the club, the number 11 spot will be vacant and Garnacho could be a good fit.
The 18-year-old is an Argentine age-group international. He joined United from Atletico Madrid in 2020. Since then, he’s made an impact, helping them win their first Youth Cup in a decade.
As a flanker, Garnacho is said to be confident off the dribble and has good passing ability.
United saw so much potential in him that they signed him to a contract extension until 2028.
United legend Paul Scholes was so impressed with his potential that he said he could see Ronaldo as a youngster.
Garnacho is famous for wanting Ronaldo. He’s been an idol since he was a kid and has shown his affection by wearing Ronaldo’s CR7 underwear.
He has also shown his fandom by performing Ronaldo-like gestures after matches.
This led to speculation that Garnacho could inherit the number 7 shirt from Ronaldo. However, the number 7 shirt has now been claimed by new signing Mason Mount.
