England starlet Jadon Sancho has completed his long-protracted move to Manchester United for 73 million Pounds. He will sign a deal till 2026 and it can be extended by another year. Sancho scored 50 goals and assisted 64 more in his four seasons at Borussia Dortmund. The 21-year-old joined in the summer of 2017 and had a promising first season. Sancho exploded to life in the 2018/2019 season. He recorded 12 goals and 18 assists in the 2018/2019 season and made his three lions debut in 2018. Sancho struck an amazing partnership with Marco Reus, Achraf Hakimi, and Norwegian goal machine Erling Haaland at the Signal Iduna Park. Jadon Sancho led BVB to the DFB-Pokal win over rivals RB Leipzig at the end of the 2020/2021 season.
Jadon Sancho can play on the right or on the left and Manchester United will need him on both flanks. Left-winger Marcus Rashford will be out for the beginning of the season as he deals with some injuries. The right-wing position is usually occupied by Mason Greenwood who is actually a striker. Jadon could be the right-wing player that Manchester United fans have been crying. The former Manchester City player will be an extra creative outlet for United. He can make them proper contenders for the English Premier League. Sancho is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second signing of the summer following the addition of goalkeeper Tom Heaton.
Sancho said to United’s Website: “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 Solskjaer 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.”
