Manchester United fans all over the world have all been waiting for when the club will finally unveil their latest marquee signing Jadon Sancho. The Red evils fans were made to wait for a little over two years before Sancho was finally signed from German Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund after the two European heavyweight clubs were locked in negotiations regarding the transfer of the England international star. Like Dortmund, United announced that they had reached an agreement in principle to sign the former Manchester City youth product for a fee of £73 million in what is a mega move by the club.
It looks like the wait will soon be over though, with reports claiming that Manchester United will be unveiling their new poster boy in the next coming days. It’s not certain what the winger’s shirt number will be at Old Trafford yet but what is known is that he would love to get the number 7 shirt. However, with Edinson Cavani in possession of that squad number currently, he may have to wait till the Uruguayan striker leaves the club or they could still find a way around it.
If United were to hand Sancho the number 7 shirt, it means Cavani would have to be given another squad number. The other squad number the former PSG striker could be looking to acquire is the number 9 shirt but it’s currently in the possession of Anthony Martial, who has been linked with a move away from the club.
