Manchester United have had a number reshuffle for the new season, with new signing Memphis Depay claiming the coveted number seven jersey.

Full-back Luke Shaw goes from the traditional left back number three he inherited from Patrice Evra to revert to the number 23 he had at Southampton.

"It’s the number I feel comfortable with and probably the one I want to carry on with until I finish my career," he said.

Marouane Fellaini swaps 31 for 27, while James Wilson will don 19 for the coming season.

The rest of the summer signings all have relatively high numbers with Sergio Romero (20), Morgan Schneiderlin (28), Bastian Schweinsteiger (31) and Matteo Darmian (36) looking to make an impression after moving to old Trafford.
