Jadon Sancho won't wear iconic No7 Man Utd shirt worn by Cantona and Ronaldo if transfer goes through due to Cavani
JADON SANCHO will reportedly be denied the iconic No7 shirt at Manchester United should he join from Borussia Dortmund.
The 21-year-old has been heavily linked with finally sealing a move to Old Trafford after the Red Devils failed to secure his services last year.
Bundesliga outfit BVB are seeking a fee of £77million plus add-ons, with United optimistic a deal can be reached.
United have already had bids in excess of £67m for the winger turned down earlier in the window.
Should Sancho have linked up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in 2020, he would have been handed the iconic No7 jersey.
Club legends Eric Cantona, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and David Beckham have all had achieved huge success with the number.
And there was hope that Sancho would be the next player to earn cult status with the No 7, however it was Edinson Cavani who was handed the famous jersey.
The Uruguay striker joined United on a free transfer on deadline day in October on an initial one-year deal, but he has since penned a new contract until 2022.
According to the Express, the 34-year-old is unlikely to hand over the number to Sancho, as his preferred No9 shirt is occupied by Anthony Martial.
It has been stated that Sancho will most likely be handed the No16 jersey, which is vacant following Marcos Rojo's move to Boca Juniors.

United icons Roy Keane and Michael Carrick previously wore that number, where they won 12 Premier League titles between them.
Sancho could be handed the No14 shirt, but that will only be available should Jesse Lingard be sold.
The forward, who has failed to feature in England's opening two Euro 2020 fixtures, is rocking the No17 while on international duty.
But Brazilian midfielder Fred currently occupies that jersey at the Theatre of Dreams.
