Despite widespread speculation, Mata did not become the latest holder of the famous No. 7 shirt at United and instead took the vacant No. 8 left behind by Anderson.
Numbers aside, Mata looks good in red doesn’t he? It suits him far better than blue ever did.
No matter how many photos or pictures we see of Mata holding up his United shirt or wearing one, it won’t fully sink in that he is a United player until he walks out onto the pitch and there is every chance that could happen tomorrow.
