Jadon Sancho has had his Manchester United move, with the club keen to finalise his move form Borussia Dortmund before he goes on holiday.
A fee pf £73 million has already been agreed between the two clubs and now there are just the formalities to be completed.
The 21-year old, one of three players to miss for England in the penalty shoot-out in the final of the Euros on Sunday, will have three weeks’ off before joining with his next teammates ahead of the new Premier League season which starts on August 14th.
United begin their 2021/2022 campaign with a trip to St James Park and Newcastle, but it is not clear of any players who went deep into the Euros will be match-fit ready in that for that match.
Sancho’s signing finally begins to an end one of the most protracted transfers with United’s pursuit of the winger stretching all the way back to last summer.
