Manchester United Football Club have finally announced their Premier League squad numbers for the upcoming season, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic given the number nine jersey. Also, the new-boys in Mkhitaryan and Bailly have been given the 22 and 3 jerseys respectively.
However, there were a couple of notable omissions from the squad numbering, and it doesn’t look like neither of James Wilson nor Guillermo Varela have any sort of long-term future at Old Trafford.
Wilson burst onto the scene a couple of years ago as he scored twice on debut, and was the new kid on the block that everyone expected big things out of. Sadly, since then he has fizzled out dramatically, and spent last year on loan at Brighton.
Guillermo Varela is a bit of an odd one. He is clearly a talented right-back, but that’s an area of the field where United have plenty of options at the moment.
