There aren't many shirts in sports that are as iconic as Cristiano Ronaldo's No.7.
Ronaldo inherited the number from David Beckham, who just left for Real Madrid, when he arrived from Sporting Lisbon in 2003.
And around the number Ronaldo has built a global brand, CR7, the brand name appears on a range of products stretching from toiletries to clothing items.
Ronaldo has become linked with the number seven in the same way that basketball legend Michael Jordan is associated with 23.
However, the number is currently taken at Manchester United by Edinson Cavani, and Daily Star Sport looks at his option.
Ronaldo has had three separate shirt numbers in his career: 7, 9, and 28.
Anthony Martial currently holds the No.9 shirt, however, 28, the number Ronaldo started his career with is available.
Ronaldo wore No.28 during his sole season at Sporting Lisbon, and the shirt remains vacant after Facundo Pellistri left for Deportivo Alvarez.
Lionel Messi opted to take an unorthodox shirt number at PSG, No.30, when he arrived in the French capital earlier in the summer.
However, Ronaldo has built a brand around seven, and there is always a possibility that Cavani could step aside for the former Ballon d'Or winner.
