As the start of the Premier League season closes in, Manchester United has to submit their official first-team squad quickly.
Thus, the Red Devils obviously have to issue shirt numbers to every player so that they’re officially enlisted in their squad.
But for now, every single player in the senior squad has their own shirt number – minus Raphael Varane.
The Frenchman is poised to complete his move to Old Trafford soon – upon doing so, he should be allotted his shirt number.
Meanwhile, Raphael Varane is reportedly poised to be given the no.4 shirt, as Phil Jones will probably be asked to take something else.
Jadon Sancho, of course, has been handed the no.25 shirt by the Red Devils, while Tom Heaton has taken up the no.22 shirt.
Other prominent first-team shirt numbers like the no.12 and no.16 are still vacant, meaning they could be given to certain players.
So far, here is the latest on Man United’s shirt numbers among the currently available players;
1. De Gea
4. Jones (poised to be taken by Varane)
34. Van de Beek
