Manchester United decision on Bruno Fernandes new number

Fernandes has a number eight tattoo on his arm and was born on that day in September in 1994. The attacking midfielder signed a new long-term contract with Reds in April and will be relishing getting to work under new manager Erik ten Hag.

He is set to feature in the opening match of the tour next Tuesday, against Liverpool in Bangkok, with all of the pre-season games live on MUTV.

Wayne Rooney filled the shirt admirably upon his arrival from Everton but, when he switched to no.10 in 2007/08, Brazilian midfielder Anderson became the fourth permanent recipient.
