Manchester United have officially completed the £72.9m signing of Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
United announced they had reached a formal agreement with Dortmund over the transfer on 1 July, but have now confirmed that the transfer has been finalised after Sancho passed a medical.
All formalities have now been completed, with the 21-year-old signing a five-year deal until 2026 with an option for an extra year.
The move marks a return to England after spending four incredibly successful years in Germany with Dortmund, which afforded him the chance to play first-team football from a very young age.
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.”
