Manchester United Have Signed Jadon Sancho In A Ps73 Million Deal Giving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer A Standout Player

Manchester United have finalized the signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for PS73 million.
Last week, the 21-year-old forward passed his medical at United’s Carrington training base, and his transfer from Germany has now been finalized.
Sancho declares ‘this is my club, this is where I belong’ in a slick unveiling video as he poses in the new United home kit.
‘I’ll always be grateful to Dortmund for providing me the chance to play first-team football, even though I always knew I’d return to England one day,’ Sancho added.
This is his residence.
Here is where he should be.

‘This is a young and dynamic squad, and I am confident that by working together, we can grow into something great and provide the fans the success they deserve.’
‘I am looking forward to working with the manager and his coaching staff to improve my game,’ said United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. ‘Jadon epitomizes the type of player I want to bring to the club, he is a forward in the greatest traditions of Manchester United,’ he added.
‘He’ll be a key member of my squad for many years to come, and we’re excited to watch him develop.’
His goal and assist totals speak for themselves, and he will also provide the club with terrific pace, flair, and creativity.
‘Old Trafford will provide him with the platform he requires to unleash his untapped potential and succeed at the greatest level,’ says the manager.
‘For a young player, Jadon has already accomplished a lot and shown the confidence to travel abroad and prove himself.’
We’re all excited to welcome Jadon back to the group as we prepare for the new season.’ Sancho returns to Manchester four years after leaving City to join Bayern Munich in Germany, where he scored 50 goals in 137 games for the Bundesliga club.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has long been interested in the winger, and the Red Devils tried to sign him from Dortmund last summer but were unable to reach an agreement with the German club, who demanded PS108 million for their England star.
Sancho returns to Manchester barely four years after leaving United’s rivals City. The winger ended up staying at Signal Iduna Park, scoring 16 goals and providing 20 assists for the German club, who finished third in the Bundesliga but won the German Cup.
Sancho joins at Old Trafford after competing for England at the European Championships this summer, but his campaign – in which he only started once for the Three Lions during the tournament – ended in defeat in the final.
Sancho, along with new Manchester United teammate Marcus Rashford and Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka, was one of three England players to miss penalties in the shootout loss to Italy, with Sancho being introduced in the penultimate minute of extra time ahead of the spot-kicks.
Sancho spoke out about the racist abuse he and his ‘brothers’ Rashford and Saka faced during the Euro 2020 final on Wednesday, insisting that ‘hate will never prevail,’ before admitting that his post-final mood was the ‘worst I’ve ever felt.’
The England winger is on vacation after a hard season, and he left on Thursday alongside compatriot and new club teammate Marcus Rashford.
Sancho comes at United after missing a critical penalty for England in the Euro 2020 final. The pair are great friends and will now spend their time away after England’s Euro agony – and before returning to training – living the high life in the Turks and Caicos islands.
They’ve flown to Providenciales, a beautiful island in the Atlantic Ocean that’s on the UK government’s green list and will provide the perfect setting for the Three Lions players to relax and enjoy the sun during their break.
Sancho might make his Old Trafford debut against Everton in a pre-season friendly on August 7, but his match fitness and whether Solskjaer wants to risk him so soon after his summer holiday will determine whether he plays.
The winger is United’s second summer acquisition after goalkeeper Tom Heaton returned to the club on a free transfer from Aston Villa, but the Red Devils appear to be far from finished in the transfer market.
They are in talks with Raphael Varane’s representatives about a transfer from Real Madrid, but have yet to initiate talks with the Spanish club.
United want to sign Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, who is valued at PS60 million, but one stumbling block could be Madrid’s asking price of PS60 million for a defender who only has a year remaining on his current contract.
Varane will not have a lot of resale value at the age of 28.
Sancho’s arrival, on the other hand, is the latest evidence from Solskjaer’s side that they are ready to close the gap on City, who won the Premier League by 12 points last season.
Last season, United placed second in England’s top flight and came second in the Europa League against Villarreal, who defeated United in a long-running penalty shootout in the Gdańsk final.
Sancho is the fourth most expensive Manchester United signing of all time, with a price tag of PS73 million.
Only Harry Maguire (£75 million), Romelu Lukaku (£76 million), and Paul Pogba (£94 million) have cost Manchester United more money.
