Man Utd fans fume as Edinson Cavani is given ‘Jadon Sancho shirt number’

Manchester United fans are not happy with reports that Edinson Cavani will take the No. 7 shirt at Old Trafford.

Cavani is expected to be confirmed as a Red Devils player before tonight’s 11pm transfer deadline having left PSG this summer.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been eager to improve his attacking options and been heavily linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho.

Many had hoped Sancho would take the iconic No. 7 at United were he to join, following the likes of Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Though Sky Sports have reported that Cavani could take the shirt with the Uruguayan set to sign a two-year deal at the Premier League giants.

But Red Devils fans are not happy with Sancho having been linked with a move for the entirety of the summer.

One posted on social media: “United giving Cavani the number 7 shirt instead of Sancho is like getting a past it Madonna to do the Superbowl instead of prime Beyonce”.

Another added: “I’m not a superstitious person but Cavani getting the No.7 jersey smells of bad omens…”

While a third joked: “Handing Cavani that number 7 shirt instead of delivering Sancho is the same as announcing The Apprentice Best Bits but billing it as a brand new series”.

And one more United fan put: “A final nail in the coffin for anyone holding out hope of Sancho happening. Cavani will reportedly wear no. 7 this season.”

In a similar mood, another commented: “If Cavani joins United & claims the no.7 shirt I’m out. Fully done.”

While another simply asked: “How have we gone from sancho to Cavani at number 7”.

A fellow frustrated fan posted: “Life comes at you fast when you're a United fan. Sancho 7 to Cavani 7………..”

And one other angry supporter fumed: “IF THERE IS NO SANCHO BRUNO SHOULD WEAR THE NO.7! NOT WALKING DEAD CAVANI”.
