Manchester United have, belatedly, announced the signing of Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho on a permanent deal.

The move, thought to have set the Red Devils back 73 million pounds, sees Sancho become the second most expensive Englishman in history, behind new-team mate Harry Maguire.

This is his home.
This is where he belongs.

Sancho left Manchester City in search of first team football, and has set the Bundesliga alight since he joined Dortmund in 2017, netting 38 goals and providing 51 assists in 104 appearances for the Black and Yellow.

What they said

Speaking on Manchester United’s official site, Sancho said:

“I’ll always be grateful to Dortmund for giving me the opportunity to play first team football, although I always knew that I would return to England one day.”

The chance to join Manchester United is a dream come true and I just cannot wait to perform in the Premier League. This is a young and exciting squad and I know, together, we can develop into something special to bring the success that the fans deserve. I am looking forward to working with the Manager and his coaching team to further develop my game.”  

Ole Gunnar Solskjear, who has been chasing Sancho’s signature for over a year, added:

“Jadon epitomises the type of player I want to bring to the club, he is a forward player in the best traditions of Manchester United. He will form an integral part of my squad for years to come and we look forward to seeing him blossom. His goals and assists records speak for themselves and he will also bring tremendous pace, flair and creativity to the team. 

“Old Trafford will give him the platform he needs to release his untapped talent and perform at the highest level. For a player of his age, Jadon has already achieved a great deal and showed the courage to go and prove himself abroad. We all look forward to welcoming Jadon to the squad as we prepare for the new campaign.”

Still just 21-years-old, Sancho could well hold down a position in Manchester United’s side for the next decade, while his upwards trajectory can only be good news for the England national team.
