Bruno Fernandes reveals his Manchester United shirt number

Following his move from Portuguese outfit Sporting CP to Manchester United, Bruno Fernandes will don the number 18 jersey.

United could end up paying €80m (£67.3m) for Fernandes, who will become the sixth Portuguese to play for the club, after Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani, Bebe, Joel Pereira, and Diogo Dalot.

The Portugal international wore the number eight jersey for Sporting but that number is currently occupied by Juan Mata at Old Trafford.

United failed to reveal the shirt number that has been assigned to Fernandes for the remainder of the season as he signed his contract.

However, all was revealed by Fernandes’ agent who posted a picture of himself alongside Fernandes holding United’s number 18 shirt on Instagram.

The number 18 jersey was previously owned by Ashley Young who left the club to join Inter Milan this month.
