At last! Bruno Fernandes' Manchester United shirt number has now been revealed.
Fernandes' agent, Miguel Ruben Pinho, posted photos on Instagram, showing Fernandes and himself holding the midfielder's United shirt with his name and new number – 18 – printed on the back.
The 25-year-old started his career with the No.32 at Novara Calcio in 2012, inheriting the same number at Udinese before moving to No.8 and No.7 at Stadio Friuli.
A move to Sampdoria brought another new number, donning the No.10 for his sole season there.
The January exit of Ashley Young to Inter Milan made the No.18 shirt available to Fernandes who has taken it.
