Manchester City confirm John Stones new kit number for next season

Taking Zaba's shirt!

A post shared by Manchester City (@mancity) on


The summer rebuild continues at Manchester City, and that means even the numbers are changing. For instance, we already know that Bernardo Silva will take the number 20 shirt next season, and now we've learned that John Stones will wear Pablo Zabaleta's #5 shirt from now on.

Stones was signed last summer and wore number 24 throughout the season, but he was #5 in his Everton days and that's clearly his favorite shirt. That is Zabaleta's number, though, so you'd better wear it proudly, Johnny.
