Jadon Sancho finalizes $100M move to Manchester United
- United Kingdom
''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,'' he said in United's statement. ''The chance to join Manchester United is a dream come true and I just cannot wait to perform in the Premier League.'' Sancho compiled 49 goals and 63 assists across all competitions for Dortmund, according to the Bundesliga club, which wished him well.
''It was Jadon's express desire to return to his home country and the Premier League, and his behavior was absolutely flawless at all times,'' Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke said in a statement.
''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,'' Sancho said.
''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,'' Solskjaer said. ''His goals and assists records speak for themselves and he will also bring tremendous pace, flair and creativity to the team.'' In 2017, Sancho turned down a deal to stay at City and instead went to Dortmund.
