- David Beckham has received plaudits for his performance in legends match against Bayern Munich
- Manchester United supporters have asked the club to re-sign the legendary winger who wore Sanchez's No.7
- The Red Devils 1999 squad defeated Bayern Munich team 5-0 in remembrance of the 1999 treble winning season
David Beckham scored a superb goal in Man United's legends game against Bayern Munich and fans are begging him to be a replacement for Alexis Sanchez.
The 44-year-old was among the scorers when United thrashed Bayern 5-0 to celebrate two decades of a memorable treble campaign in 1999.
Beckham left fans on Twitter gushing with praise as he starred again in the No.7 shirt during the comprehensive win for the Red Devils.
And after capping his display with a goal, many football lovers claimed his display was better than anything produced by Sanchez who currently wears the jersey.
One fan wrote: “At the age of 44, this guy done more than our current no 7 did this whole season, it’s a shame we don’t get any number 7s like this anymore.”
Sanchez, who earns £500,000-per-week at United, has failed to live up to the billing since arriving from Arsenal in January 2018.
The Chilean has scored just twice all season with only one of those coming at against Everton at Old Trafford – a point that did not go unnoticed by United supporters.

A fan tweeted: “Goals at Old Trafford this season. Beckham 1 in 1 game as our no. 7 Sanchez... Don't even want to go there”
Another said: “David Beckham basically showed Alexis Sanchez how special you have to be in the iconic #7.”
While those thoughts were also echoed by another supporter: “Beckham did more today then Sanchez has done all season.”
And that post led to several tweets directed at United’s Twitter account asking for the former England captain’s return.
One pleaded: “Please Beckham come and replace Sanchez and get paid 500k per week even if you have to play only for 45mins , Seeing you in the pitch will motivate other players and your free kick is like penalty shoot.”
Another asked: “Can we swap Sanchez with Beckham??”
While another added: “I’d trade Sanchez. Darmian. Young. Lingaard. Lukkaku All for the chance to see Beckham play on Utd’s right hand side. Even if it’s 15 minutes at the end of a game. Come back.”
