Memphis Depay wears No.26 during first Manchester United training session

by Sam Peoples

Memphis Depay wore the No.7 shirt at PSV with pride and would no doubt have wanted to take the same number at Manchester United.

Unfortunately for him, Angel di Maria is now Man United’s No.7 so the number is unavailable. So, fans are wondering what number would he take.

At his first United training session today, Memphis strolled out wearing shorts with No.26 on them.

Does this mean Memphis is going to be United’s new No.26? The number is available at least.


Over his career, Memphis has worn plenty of numbers including No.22 at PSV, No.21 with Holland and most recently No.7 with the Dutch side.

However, all three of those are taken already at Old Trafford thanks to Ander Herrera (No.21), Nick Powell (No.22) and Di Maroa (No.7), so maybe No.26 will be the latest in his back catalogue.

For Memphis, it would have been fantastic to see him given the No.7 shirt but he joined a season too late, so he will have to settle for something else.

What shirt number do you think Memphis will be wearing for Manchester United next season?
