Manchester United officially confirmed new signing Daniel James will wear the no.21 shirt for Manchester United.
The young Wales international has inherited the number from the departing Ander Herrera, who had been its previous occupant for five years.
Daniel James joined the Reds last month from Swansea City, penning a five-year deal at Old Trafford. He has since been followed into the club by Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who will wear no.29.
The new home shirt for 2019/20 with ‘James 21’ on the back is now available to buy from adidas.com, and the winger could wear his jersey for the first time during Manchester United pre-season friendlies. The opening fixture takes place on Saturday 13 July against Perth Glory at 12:00 BST.
Daniel James will be the seventh United player to wear 21 since squad numbers were introduced for the Premier League’s second season, 1993/94.
