NEW Manchester United signing Amad Diallo has been handed the No19 shirt.
The highly-rated winger will follow in the footsteps of the likes of Marcus Rashford, Edwin van der Sar and Eric Djemba-Djemba.
United have completed the signing of teenage ace Diallo for £37million with the 18-year-old touted for a big future.
The club confirmed Diallo will wear the No19 shirt with 'Amad' on his back as he prepares to start his United career.
Diallo played five games for Atalanta and will head to England hoping to make an impact in the second half of the season.
The pacy attacker follows in the footsteps of a number of United legends in wearing this shirt.
Former goalkeeper Van der Sar wore the No19 shirt during the 2005-2006 season before switching to the usual No1 jersey.
Rashford has been the most recent United player to use this number with the England star scoring 24 goals in 105 appearances as the No19.
Former midfielder Eric Djemba-Djemba, Dwight Yorke, Nicky Butt and Danny Welbeck were other notable names in recent years to wear the shirt.

Diallo has some big shoes to fill but he has been tipped for a huge future from an early age.
The attacker was described as 'a champion' as a 12-year-old after a Roma scout watched him for just five minutes.
With a four-and-a-half-year contract at United, the Red Devils have put their faith in him and Diallo could be a star in the making.
