Manchester United will offer Jadon Sancho the no.7 shirt, in an offer to pesuade him to join this summer, the Evening Standard reports.
The Red Devils are believed to be leading the race to sign Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for a club-record fee.
United believed they were close to a deal at the end of last season, but their failure to qualify for the Champions League saw the move collapse.
In any case, they will attempt again for the England winger ahead of next season.
Alexis Sanchez at present wears the shirt, yet the club plan to move him on this summer.
Even if they fail to sell him, it is believed Sanchez will be stripped of the shirt number.
