The more things change, the more they stay the same.
Cristiano Ronaldo is a Manchester United player.
Ronaldo hasn't played for United since 2009, with his last contest being that year's Champions League final against Barcelona (a 2-0 defeat to Messi and co.). Now, 12 years later, he's back.
He'll likely make his debut on September 11 against Newcastle United, where he'll don the iconic number 7 shirt again. Edinson Cavani switches to 21, the number he wears for Uruguay.
In a club press release, Ronaldo expressed his deepest gratitude to Cavani.
"I wasn't sure if it would be possible to have the number seven shirt again, so I would like to say a huge 'thank you' to Edi for this incredible gesture."
