The number is special to Beckham, 46, who wore it during his time at Old Trafford, before a 2003 transfer to Real Madrid.

And it was actually Ronaldo, 36, who inherited the iconic United jersey after he joined from Sporting Lisbon that same year.

The Portugal legend followed in Beckham’s footsteps in 2009 with a then-record £80m to the Spanish capital.

After nine seasons in Spain, Ronaldo then spent three years with Juventus before this summer making an emotional return to Manchester.

He has 12 goals in 16 games since being re-signed by his former team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who was later sacked.

And speculation about his future soon followed after the announcement that German Ralf Rangnick would take charge until the end of the season.

But Rangnick, who likes to play a high-press, watched from Old Trafford as Ronaldo scored twice in the win over Arsenal.

And the new United boss played down fears Ronaldo would not be the man for his set-up.

Rangnick said: “You always have to adapt your style or your idea of football to the players you have available, not vice versa.

“Having seen Cristiano yesterday in the second half at the age of 36, an amazing top professional.

“At his age, I’ve never seen a player who is still that physically fit. He’s still a player who can easily make the difference.

“So yes, it’s about how we can develop the whole team, not only Cristiano.

“We play in the most competitive league in the world, so we need all the players on board.

“What I saw from Cristiano yesterday, he is more than willing to do that, to put his input into the team. His teammates will have to do the same.”
