Eric Cantona wants Manchester United to sign Javier Pastore and make him their new No.7.
The Argentine has barely featured for Paris Saint-Germain this season but has still managed to score three goals in seven Ligue 1 appearances so far.
Reports have claimed that PSG are ready to sell Pastore in January, and the midfielder has been linked with a move to Liverpool.
But Cantona, who wore the No.7 shirt during his five-year stint at Old Trafford, has urged Jose Mourinho to make a move for the 28-year-old.
‘I love Pastore, he plays for Paris but he doesn’t play in the team,’ Cantona told FullTimeDevils when asked who he thinks should be United’s next No.7.
‘He plays for Paris but he doesn’t play in the team.
‘They have two great players – Pastore and [Hatem] Ben Arfa and neither of them play.
‘Pastore is very special, Pastore surprises you every time, he gives the ball to someone no-one has seen before.
‘And he surprises all of the fans, I think he’s a great player.
‘He plays for Argentina, which is a great player, but he doesn’t play for Paris, which is a small club!’
