Valencia baled Number 7, Kagawa Number 26

Manchester United winger, Antonio Valencia, will wear the number seven in the 2012-13 season. While the two newcomers, Nick Powell and Shinji Kagawa will use the number 25 and 26.

Ecuador's previous international players wore the number 25 but he is asking given the number 7 that had been used by great players like George Best Manchester United, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo after the departure of Michael Owen.

Valencia seems pretty decent to wear the legendary number after performing brilliantly with 13 assists in the Premier League plus six goals in all competitions. Valencia was also elected as the 2011-12 club's best player.

Previously, the number seven was offered to Kagawa. However, players who are trafficked from Borussia Dortmund was refused and chose to wear number 26 left by Gabriel Obertan. It would also be subject to a number Kagawa while still playing at Cerezo Osaka.

Valencia's number 25 now "passed on" to Powell, who was recruited from the League Two club Crewe.

Meanwhile Manchester United have not confirmed his squad for next season. Thus quoted from the official club website.
