Manchester United made their first signing of the summer on Wednesday with the capture of young Dutch midfielder Donny Van De Beek and a shirt number has swiftly been assigned to him.

Donny Van De Beek will wear the jersey number 34 at the Theatre of Dreams.

He became a Red Devil after Ajax Amsterdam and Manchester United agreed a €44m deal for him.

Van De Beek had his Manchester United medicals on Monday prior to his official announcement.

He has put pen to paper on a five-year deal with the option of an extra year.

The Ajax Amsterdam trainee opted for the number 34 jersey at Manchester United to honour his friend Abdelhak Nouri who has been battling to recover following his collapse during a friendly in the summer of 2017.

Abdelhak Nouri suffered a brain damage from the incident and his former club teammate has decided to honour him with his shirt number at Ajax.

Nouri and Van De Beek came through the Ajax Amsterdam Academy together.

Van De Beek wore No. 6 at Ajax but the number has been occupied by star player Paul Pogba at Manchester United.

The Dutchman could make his debut for the Red Devils officially later this month in the Premier League.
