Man Utd shirt numbers available for Jadon Sancho if they seal £120m transfer

Manchester United are confident they can beat Chelsea and Liverpool to Jadon Sancho’s transfer – and there are a number of shirt numbers available for the Borussia Dortmund man

Manchester United are hoping to beat their European rivals in the battle for Borussia Dortmund flyer Jadon Sancho?

But which shirt number could the youngster take upon his arrival at Old Trafford?

The Evening Standard have this week claimed Sancho will be offered the number seven shirt in a bid to persuade him to choose United over other suitors.

Alexis Sanchez started the season with the iconic number on his back before being shipped out on loan to Inter Milan.

But the Chilean is unlikely to win back his place under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer upon his return and could vacate the shirt.

Anthony Martial picked up the number nine shirt after originally wearing No 11 for United.

The double-digit shirt, formerly worn by club legend Ryan Giggs, is also up for the grabs.

Marcos Rojo has ditched his No 16 shirt after leaving on loan in January.

 

Meanwhile, the No 18 has become available after Ashley Young’s move to the San Siro, while Jesse Lingard is facing an uncertain future and could leave his No 14 jersey.

But it’s likely Sancho will be given a more crucial shirt should he return to Manchester.

Sancho left United’s rivals Manchester City in 2017 for just £8m but has since excelled into one of the most promising young prospects in world football.

The youngster celebrated his 20th birthday earlier this week and also enjoyed a video chat with Red Devils star Lingard on Monday evening, sending fans into raptures.

Fans of Solskjaer’s side took to social media to float the theory Lingard was set to persuade Sancho to join.

Ed Woodward is said to be determined to ensure the player ends up at Old Trafford.

Chelsea, Liverpool and Juventus continue to be touted as potential destinations for Sancho this summer.
