Manchester United has revealed the jersey number of new signings Allex Telles and Facundo Pellistri.
The duo together with Edinson Cavani were deadline signings by United and after handing the famous jersey 7 to Cavani, United has now revealed that Telles and Pellistri will don jersey 27 and 28 respectively for the duo.
The last player at United to wear jersey 27 was Marouane Fellaini who left for China with previous occupants including Federico Macheda, Mikael Silvestre and even Gary Neville.
Pellistri inherits jersey 28 from Angel Gomes who left the club for French club Lyon in the summer. It hasn’t brought much fortune to those who have worn it over the years, with Morgan Schneiderlin, Alexander Buttner and Darron Gibson all occupying it for a spell.
