Sancho ‘requests Cavani’s No7 shirt number’ as Man Utd agree £73m deal


anchester United are set to make Jadon Sancho the second most expensive English football of all time, and have already lined up a shirt number suitable for the title.

The agreement almost brings to a close a deal over a year in the making, with United first tracking the former Manchester City player midthrough the 2019-20 season.

Sancho has reportedly asked for the famous No.7 shirt, made famous by the likes of club greats George Best, Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Edinson Cavani wore the shirt last season and will, therefore, be given a new number for the 2021-22 campaign.

With Anthony Martial’s future at the club uncertain, Cavani could end up taking his no9. The other vacant numbers include 12, 15 and 20.
