Manchester United have already wrapped up the Jadon Sancho deal this summer with the initial £73 million fees plus £4 million in add ons. The deal is expected to be announced in a few days after some paperwork is still required to be signed as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed after the Derby match on Sunday. The Englishman has already undergone the medicals before going on holiday.
After a long going saga over this transfer, the Red Devils have finally secured the Englishman. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side started to work on this transfer last summer. When Borussia Dortmund was asking £108 million for their star. However, the Premier League club have saved significant amounts of money by delaying the deal for one year.
The winger has showcased his talent in Bundesliga since making the move from Manchester City back in 2017. Thereby, scoring 38 goals and assisting 45 times in 104 Bundesliga appearances over the past four campaigns.
When Sancho might be in action with Manchester United:
Following the involvement in the Euro 2020 the winger is currently on holiday and will not be back at training before the end of this month. This means Manchester United fans might not be able to watch their beloved new signing in action in the four of the pre-season games.
Sancho could be in action as early as next month against Everton in the last friendly game before the start of the Premier League season. The Englishman will be making his debut in front of the home fans on 14th August against old rival Leeds United in the opening fixtures of the league.
Fellow Englishman Marcus Rashford will be out of action for quite a while after undergoing shoulder surgery. Sancho will have to take big responsibility to fill that void with his creativity and goal threat. It will be interesting to see, in which position the 21-year-old will make his debut in the absence of Rashford. As the former Manchester City man can play on the left-wing role as well.
The signing of Sancho will excite the Manchester United fans. He can dribble past people and score goals and also can provide for his colleagues. The Englishman can serve at Old Trafford for over a decade.
