Cantona: This Player Could Be Man Utd's New No. 7

Manchester United legend Eric Cantona has named the player he believes the Red Devils should sign as their new No. 7.

The Frenchman, who recently slammed Neymar for his decision to join Paris Saint-Germain, was asked who he thinks could wear the famous No. 7 shirt at United – a number he wore during his time at the club.

"I love (Javier) Pastore," he told GiveMeSport.

"He plays for Paris but he doesn't play in the team. They have two great players – Pastore and Ben Arfa, and neither of them play."

Cantona was also asked if he though Atletico Madrid attacker Antoine Griezmann could fill the role.

"Yes, why not? But Pastore is very special," he responded.   

"Pastore will surprise you every time. Every time he touches the ball, he surprises you – he gives the ball to someone no one had seen before. He surprises all the fans.

"I think he (Pastore) is a great player. He played for Argentina, which is a great country – but he doesn't play for Paris, which is a small club."

Pastore has played just 10 games this season for PSG, scoring three goals and assisting one further strike.
