​REVEALED: Sancho requests to wear famous no.7 jersey at Man Utd

Manchester United may be ready to hand the number 7 shirt to their new signing.

The Red Devils are reportedly close to securing Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.

The English attacker will arrive in the coming weeks and sign a five year contract, plus the option for a sixth year.

The Athletic has claimed Sancho will wear the no.7 shirt on his back with the Red Devils.

Edinson Cavani is United's current no.7, which means Sancho may have to wait a year to get his dream number if the Uruguayan is not willing to give it up.

United's numer seven jersey has been worn such club greats as George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.
