PICTURE: Juan Mata handed the no.8 jersey at Manchester United

Manchester United’s club record signing Juan Mata will wear the #8 jersey. The 25-year old Spaniard has made a huge impact on the club already without even playing a match, and surely come tomorrow evening he’ll be making his United debut in front of a roaring Old Trafford crowd.

Many thought that Mata would get the iconic #7 jersey, but both Moyes and Mata agreed that the best number for the player was #8. The previous owner of the #8 was Anderson, who has recently joined Fiorentina on loan with a view to a permanent deal.

Mata met the media for the first time today, and we’ll have all the best quotes on the website for you shortly.
