Man United star in race to take iconic No.7 jersey following Sanchez Inter move
Jesse Lingard has shown interest in getting the iconic jersey No. 7 – Alexis Sanchez Old Trafford exit leaves the iconic No.7 jersey vacant – Manchester United have struggled to find a perfect replacement for the number since Ronaldo leaving the club for Madrid Jesse Lingard.
Manchester United star has reportedly shown interest in the famous No. 7 jersey vacated by Alexis Sanchez. Sanchez left United on transfer deadline day, sealing a sensational season-long loan switch to Inter Milan.
Memphis Depay was the last player to sport the jersey before Sanchez succeeding it after his arrival from Arsenal in January 2018.
However, former Man United striker Louis Saha is not convinced Lingard is the right man, insisting he is not happy with the idea. “I mean, no disrespect, Jesse’s a player from the academy and he’s been there a long time, he understands.
But as I mentioned it’s not just something that you just claim,” Saha was quoted saying. “It’s something that people give to you for some reason because you now have attached to your back something that represents the club, you represent the club, the history and all that,” he added.
