EPL: Manchester United’s Newly Signed Player Takes Pogba’s Shirt

By Tolulope Popoola
Manchester United has confirmed that its new defender, Lisandro Martinez, is set to wear the number six shirt.

The shirt was last worn by Paul Pogba in the last football season, as he happened to have left as a free agent to join Juventus again.

Martinez moved to Old Trafford from Ajax after both clubs agreed on a £55 million fee.

The Argentine centre-back wore the number 21 shirt at Ajax, which he inherited from Frenkie de Jong.

He was expected to wear the same for the Red Devils after it became free, following the departure of Edinson Cavani but Martinez has instead been handed Pogba’s old number six shirt, which simply connotes that the no 21 is still available.

The UK Mirror claims United are confident they can still land De Jong this summer.
