Juventus winger Juan Cuadrado runs Twitter poll to decide new number after Cristiano Ronaldo takes No.7 shirt


There was no sulking from the Colombian after he was forced to find a new jersey

Having sealed his mega-money to Juventus, Cristiano Ronaldo will wear the number seven shirt for the Italian champions.

Spare a thought for Juan Cuadrado then, who wore the number last season but has now been told to find a new one.

The former Chelsea winger, however, is not sulking and has fully accepted the decision to give Ronaldo what he wants.

He even posted an Instagram image of himself holding a Juve shirt with Ronaldo 7 on the back and the message:  “It is more blessed to give than to receive blessings.”

The Colombian has since taken to Twitter to ask fans which squad number he should now take.

He presented four options in a poll, 16, 21, 49 and 10, although the latter was in jest as that would mean star striker Paulo Dybala giving up his jersey.

More than 150,000 people voted and, as you can see, the number 49 was selected. Why? Because seven times seven is 49, of course.

Well played, everyone!

Ronaldo, meanwhile, will be showing off his new No.7 shirt on Monday.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has landed in Turin as he prepares to be officially unveiled by Juventus following his £99million move from Real Madrid.
