Manchester United have completed the signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund for a fee of £72.9m.
His move to Old Trafford follows a year-long pursuit by United, who were reportedly put off at first by Dortmund’s 100m pound valuation of Sancho, a former Manchester City youth team player.
The deal was also announced just weeks after Sancho, together with new United team-mate Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka, received racist abuse following their penalty shoot-out misses in England’s Euro 2020 final defeat by Italy at Wembley.

Sancho told the club’s website: “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.”
