Will Jodan Sancho Inherit Ghosts Haunting Number 7 Shirt at Old Trafford
Borussia Dortmund has valued Jodan Sancho at £108m(Ksh 15.228 Billion) as Manchester United moves closer to signing England forward who will wear the number 7.
It is a good business for Dortmund who signed Sancho for £7.2m(Ksh 1.015billion three years ago but is it realistic for Manchester United?
Sancho will pick the number 7 shirt from  £350,000 a week  Alexis Sanches who is reported to have agreed a three-year deal switch to Inter Milan.
Since his arrival at Old Trafford in January 2018, Sanches endured a frustrating time scoring five goals only. The Chilean international moved to Inter Millan where despite injuries, he has impressed.
Before Sanches, there was Memphis Depay who joined Old Trafford at a reported fee of £25 million but failed to impress as expected. The Dutch International later moved to French League 1 side, Lyon where he has impressed scoring 43 goals in French League 1 so far as opposed to 2 that he scored at Man United.
Depay picked the number 7 shirt from Angel Di Maria who joined Manchester United on 26th August 2014, from Real Madrid for a record fee of £59.7. The Argentine scored 3 goals and produced 10 assists in 27 matches he played for Manchester United. He then moved to PSG where he has immensely contributed to the success of the French giants.
Since the exit of Christiano Ronaldo in 2009 for a record fee of £80 million, Manchester United have struggled to find a perfect replacement for the number 7 shirt. Will Sancho impress?
