Di Maria deal to allow exciting star to take no.7 shirt.
Manchester United will hand the number 7 shirt to £30m summer signing Memphis Depay after Angel Di Maria completes his move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The Argentine is closing in on an exit from Old Trafford this week, expecting to bring in around £44m from his sale, which should allow for United to sign Barcelona winger Pedro.
Still, it seems Depay, not Pedro, would take Di Maria’s 7 shirt, despite wearing the number 9 for most of pre-season so far as he seems most likely to play up front this season.
