MANCHESTER UNITED will offer Jadon Sancho the chance to follow in legendary footsteps by wearing the famous No7 shirt at Old Trafford, according to reports.

The Red Devils are desperate to land the 20-year-old in a deal that would be worth north of £100million.

Sancho has been in outstanding form for Dortmund

And as a final sweetener to seal the deal, the Mirror claim that United will give Sancho one of the most famous shirt numbers in English football.

The No7 shirt at Old Trafford is something of legend, having been worn with aplomb by so many greats down the years.

George Best, regarded by many that saw him play as the greatest ever Red Devil, swaggered to success in the iconic jersey in the 1960s.

And he has been followed by the likes of Bryan Robson, David Beckham and Eric Cantona – as well as Cristiano Ronaldo.

Since Cr7 left United in 2009, however, they have struggled to find players befitting of the number to wear it.

Michael Owen, Antonio Valencia, Angel Di Maria and Memphis Depay have all struggled to live up to the legend in that period.

But Sancho would surely be different.

SunSport recently revealed that United believe that they have virtually agreed every detail of personal terms with the former Manchester City wonderkid.

Agreeing a fee with Borussia Dortmund will be more difficult, with BVB keen to tie Sancho down to a new contract.

But, resigned to probably losing their star man, the Bundesliga giants have reportedly agreed to let him go if United smash their transfer record and pay over £100m.

Sancho has been a revelation in Germany, scoring 14 goals and assisting a further 16 in 23 Bundesliga appearances this season.

He is friends with England team-mate Marcus Rashford – who has given him a glowing review.

The United No10 has informed boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that Sancho is “decent” and “dependable” as well as a fan of his work at United.
