They arrived together at the club’s training base in Carrington on Tuesday as they met their teammates ahead of the new season.

Now the club have announced the numbers the pair will wear for the 2022/23 season.

Eriksen, who signed a three-year contract after joining the team as a free agent, will take the No.14 shirt.

He was released when Jesse Lingard left the club on a free transfer at the end of last season.

Aside from Lingard, Javier Hernandez, Alan Smith, Tim Howard, David May and the late Andy Goram have all worn No. 14.

Meanwhile, Martinez has taken over Paul Pogba’s No.6 shirt for the new season.

Gary Pallister was the first to regularly don the jersey before he left in 1998, before Jaap Stam wore it for four seasons.

Wes Brown had possession of it between 2003 and 2011, before Jonny Evans and then Pogba took possession of it.

There may be an indication that United are keeping the No.21 shirt vacant for the time being, which was vacated by Edinson Cavani.

Eriksen wore that same number at Brentford, while Martinez also had it at Ajax for several years.

No.21 happens to be the shirt number worn by Frenkie de Jong at Barcelona, ​​who remains Erik ten Hag’s top target this summer.
