After Cristiano Ronaldo’s move to Juventus was announced earlier this week, talk has been rife over whether or not he’d get his preferred No.7 jersey.

The Portuguese superstar wore the number at Man Utd before eventually switching to it at Real Madrid after initially taking up the No.9 jersey on his arrival at the Bernabeu.

However, with Juan Cuadrado already wearing the No.7 at Juventus, it was up for debate as to whether or not the Colombian international would be asked, and in turn would be willing, to give up the number to hand it over to Ronaldo.

As seen in his tweet below, it appears as though he will do. Whether it’s come after a conversation with Ronaldo or the club is not known, but evidently, the winger has shown his ability to be a team player and offer Juve’s new superstar signing what he would have been desperate for.

“More blessed is to give than to receive. Blessings Cristiano, in this new adventure,” he wrote in his caption along with an image of him holding a ‘Ronaldo 7’ jersey.

As noted in their official statement, Juventus have splashed out in excess of €100m to take Ronaldo to Turin, where he will look to sustain the impressive level of success he has enjoyed throughout his career.

He’ll undoubtedly appreciate this gesture from Cuadrado, but it remains to be seen when official confirmation from the club arrives that their marquee new signing is set to wear a very prestigious number previously worn by the likes of Gianluca Pessotto, Antonio Conte and Angelo Di Livio.
