PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! There is no image more iconic in English football than Manchester United's number seven hugging the touchline at Old Trafford. George Best, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo are among the greats to have carried that responsibility - while Eric Cantona also donned THE famous shirt, albeit as a centre-forward. In the modern game, that symbolic trip down memory lane has been negated by outlandish squad numbers. Indeed, the two widemen who were deployed against Leicester City last night, Amad and Anthony Elanga, wore 19 and 56 respectively, while Shola Shoretire this season made a United debut with 74 printed on his back. Purists might argue 'the game is gone' in that sense, but that is a stand-point best placed to one side for now. As attentions turn to the summer transfer window, Jadon Sancho could return to Manchester - only this time on the red side of the city - amid the MEN's understanding that the England international is pushing for a move away from Borussia Dortmund. While other elite European clubs queue up for teammate Erling Haaland, United might just have a clear run. Sporting calendars across the board are, quite often, shaped by four-year cycles. In the case of United, two of them could be primed for a fitting finale this summer.

If successful, it would mark their first trophy since they won the same competition in 2017 under Jose Mourinho. By way of coincidence, that was directly before United first registered an interest in Sancho, who instead opted to leave Manchester City to continue his development in the Bundesliga with Dortmund. It's less than 24 hours since United officially surrendered the title to their previously 'noisy' neighbours.

. Edinson Cavani's u-turn has bought key figures responsible for transfers time when it comes to their pursuit to sign a world class striker; enabling a rework of the club's window plans. The MEN understands Sancho is pushing for a move. Dortmund, too, could be willing to play ball - reducing their nine-figure asking price from last summer.

Wilfried Zaha was purchased and lasted two seasons before a permanent return to Crystal Palace. Adnan Januzaj failed to live up to the hype. Angel di Maria failed to live up to the price tag. Memphis Depay was occasionally used in that position but, while he is a much more accomplished player now, fans didn't get to see the very best of him in the famous red shirt.

Those three alone cost United well in excess of €100million. Of course, signing Sancho does not come with a guaranteed return, but 48 goals and 62 assists across 134 matches all-told for Dortmund suggests United, if successful in their pursuit, have a serious player on their hands. Mason Greenwood, Amad and Dan James are there to provide back-up, while the former will also be out to stake his claim in attacking quarters as an alternative for Cavani. It's taken more than a decade and a staggering amount of millions, but United are now seemingly on the right track when it comes to suitably occupying THE most iconic role at Old Trafford.
