MASON MOUNT has been given the historic number seven shirt following his move to Manchester United.
Young Blue has finally completed his move to Manchester in a deal worth £60million.
United confirmed the news and released pictures of Mount in Red for the first time.
And they later confirmed the former Chelsea star will wear the number 7 shirt – the famous shirt worn by Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Although some felt that the shirt should have been saved for Argentina youth player Alejandro Garnacho.
One said, “Garnacho robbed.”
Another agreed: “Garnacho deserves it.”
One added: “Can anyone check on Garnacho?”
Garnacho, who wears 49, made the leap into the United first-team under Erik ten Hag last season and has impressed in his 34 appearances.
But his dream number 7 shirt has gone to Mount, who famously wore the number 19 in his last five years at Chelsea.

His favorite shirt number is 10, but the England star wore the number 7 when he was young.
Mount leaves Chelsea after 18 years at the club, graduating from the academy and breaking into the first team in 2019.
The 24-year-old is eliminated with a Champions League winners’ medal and has made the hard decision to leave the club.
He said: “Leaving the club you grew up with is never easy, but Manchester United will provide an exciting new challenge for the next phase of my career.”
“Having faced them I know how strong the team I’m about to join is and I can’t wait to be a part of this group’s quest to win big trophies.”
“Everyone can see that the club has made great progress under Erik ten Hag.
“Having met with the manager and discussed his plans I’m super excited for the coming seasons and ready for the hard work that is expected here.”
“I am extremely ambitious; I know how great it is to win big trophies and what it takes.”
“I will give everything to experience that again at Manchester United.”
