Angel di Maria is proud to be wearing the Manchester United No7 shirt.

Di Maria is well aware of the significance of United's number seven, a shirt worn with distinction in the past by the likes of George Best, Steve Coppell, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.

He said: "I was aware of the importance of the number seven shirt.

"Cristiano Ronaldo had spoken to me at Real Madrid and told me how important it was.

"I wanted to wear this shirt and do as much for the club as Ronaldo and the others could do.

"The club also wanted me to wear it so I want to live up to it."
