Find out why we believe that English winger Jadon Sancho, is the most suitable player to take Manchester United’s No. 7 jersey in the future.
We apologize to Alexis Sanchez for what you are about to read, but we truly believe Jadon Sancho is better suited to wear Manchester United’s No. 7 shirt and we are going to discuss why.
An explosive report from The Metro last Thursday suggests that the Borussia Dortmund youngster is seriously being considered to reinforce the Red Devils next summer, the possible transfer fee would be of about €95 million that they wouldn’t mind spending for a player who can arguably be considered amongst the most talented under-20 players in the world.
Sancho’s appearance actually resembles the type of player that Sir Alex Ferguson usually loved for that specific position, we all know how important the number ‘7’ jersey is for the club and how much it has been “mistreated” since Cristiano Ronaldo left the club.
It’s nothing against Alexis Sanchez really, the Chilean winger is a good football player but he hardly fits the part of being the Red Devils’ mythical number ‘7’ player.
Sancho on the other hand, is the ideal explosive dribbler who works for the squad and delivers impressive stats every single week for his club.
Even if Borussia Dortmund doesn’t want to let their player leave, a €95 million offer from Manchester United is simply too much to turn down.
"Manchester United are keeping a close eye on 18-year-old England international Jadon Sancho. Who is said to be valued at about £90 million."

This plot from Manchester United actually seems like the ideal revenge story that the Red Devils could grant Sancho against his former club, a player who grew up in Manchester City’s academy and was rejected by manager Pep Guardiola because they didn’t consider him good enough for the wage rise he requested.
Sancho is not happy with the way he was treated by the Citizens, he also hasn’t disclosed which of both Manchester clubs he roots for.
It is well-known that Pep Guardiola was the one who made the final decision to not meet the player’s requests, which is why Sancho eventually decided to prove a point by moving to the Bundesliga’s current leaders where he performs brilliantly every weekend.
The young winger has done nothing but grows at an accelerated rate and he already is considered one of the best players in German football right now, but we have a feeling that Jadon Sancho still hasn’t proved his point to Manchester City and Pep Guardiola.
The report that talks about the Red Devils approaching the youngster and his family, suggest that they are going after him with determination and they won’t take no for an answer.

The ideal conditions appear to be set for the young player to reach the destination that all Manchester City fans fear, Jadon Sancho visiting Etihad Stadium while wearing the red Manchester United jersey will turn all heads and will remain as a testament of Pep Guardiola’s most recent transfer fiasco.
But this should be looked at as a possibility that goes way beyond just a revenge story, Sancho has the opportunity of a lifetime to place his name alongside a large variety of historic number ‘7’ players of the likes of Eric Cantona, David Beckham, George Best, and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Getting rid of Alexis Sanchez won’t be too difficult for the Red Devils as they don’t consider he has done particularly well with the club since he arrived, that jersey will be free for the time Jadon Sancho comes to the club if he finally makes that life-changing decision.
The youngster knows how much the Manchester City supporters will hate him if he jumps ship to the hated neighbour, but he also knows the glory that awaits for him at Old Trafford and becoming a United legend is a privilege that very few players can have in their careers.
The papers are reporting that Manchester United are looking at Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho with a view to making a summer move for the 18-year-old England international.
It's the gossip!
