Man Utd could be about to give Alejandro Garnacho a special new shirt number

He picked up a yellow card for taking his shirt off but this was a moment of jubilation for the Argentine, especially given his injury torment.

United have a superstar on their hands. He is a player capable of going right to the very top, providing he stays grounded and continues to follow orders.

Ten Hag knows this, which is why the Dutchman drove the decision for the forward to recently sign a bumper new contract at the club.

At present, Garnacho sports the No 49 - having been given a shirt number promotion at the beginning of the season.

With each and every game he plays, however, he’s looking increasingly like a natural fit for the famous, iconic No 7 instead.
