Weghorst picked the shirt number as he wanted to have a “striker’s number”.

As the two numbers, two and seven added together make nine which is a traditional squad number for a centre forward.

He told club media: “Of course, I looked into the ones that are free or available.

“Two and seven will make nine, of course – a striker’s number.

“I had a feeling with it.”

The number 27 belonged to United defender Alex Telles, but is currently out on loan at LaLiga side Sevilla.

Weghorst revealed that he asked the Brazilian if he was okay with him taking his number for the next six months.

He added: “Of course, when I came here, I heard about it was Alex [Telles]’s number, he got loaned out now.

“I first had to ask him if that was okay, so I said that was, for me, important and then, in the end, there was no problem so thanks to him also.

“So yeah, I go for the 27 and actually, it’s just because I had a good feeling with it.”

Weghorst was unable to make his debut for the club during the Manchester derby victory against Manchester City.
