Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for £73m. The England winger has put pen to paper on a 5-year contract until June 2026 with an option for an extra year.
After Manchester United agreed a fee with Borussia Dortmund on 1 July, Sancho underwent a medical at United after his participation at Euro 2020.
The 21-year old joins United after four years with Borussia Dortmund, where he scored 50 goals and provided 64 assists, winning the German Cup in his final season with the Bundesliga club.
Jadon 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.”
A delighted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said:
“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.
Sancho will meet his teammates upon returning from holiday. United fans will look forward to seeing the talented youngster play at Old Trafford in the coming weeks.
