Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed delight following the completion of the deal for Jadon Sancho, which will keep him at the club until June 2026, with an option of a further year.
The deal is still subject to an international clearance for the 21-year-old who scored 50 goals with 64 assists in four seasons with Borussia Dortmund.
Sancho represented England at the Euro 2020 and the Three Lions got to the final only to lose on penalties to Italy.
An excited Solskjaer told the club’s official website: “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.”
