Manchester United have announced the complete signing of Borussia Dortmund winger, Jadon Sancho on a five deal which will keep him at Old Trafford till 2026 with an option of another year. 

Sancho, 21, scored 50 goals and registered 64 assists in four seasons with Borussia Dortmund. The England international was part of the squad that reached the final of Euro 2020.

Jadon is a highly technical, creative player who is known for his trickery, pace, and use of feints in one-on-one situations.

Sancho can function as a second striker or wide midfielder typically in a Borussia Dortmund 4–2–3–1 formation on either wing of attack.

Dortmund's 'young player project' has helped Sancho function as the focal point of attack alongside a core of talented young stars like Erling Haaland, Gio Reyna, and Jude Bellingham.

After penning the deal, 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.”

Man Utd coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who needs a huge boost ahead of the 2021-22 season said in regards to his new signing,

“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 has shown 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.”

Manchester United is due to begin their 2021-22 season against EFL Champions Brentford on Wednesday 28th, 2021. Sancho could get a start to face the newbies.
