The former England captain first took the No 7 short in 1997 and wore it in six brilliant seasons that included four of his six Premier League titles, and the treble in 1998-99.

Posting on picture-sharing app Instagram, Beckham wrote: "Nice little gift with love from Manchester ... New Adidas kits for me and the kids..."

The image got more than 600,000 'likes' from his 10million followers.

However, according to the Manchester Evening News, United supporters may not be allowed to get the 'Beckham 7' shirt printed on the back of the new shirt at the club's megastore.

An image rights issue also means the same applies to the likes of Eric Cantona and Cristiano Ronaldo.
