The longest transfer saga in recent history is finally over. Jadon Sancho is returning to Manchester.
Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund have reached an agreement for the transfer of Sancho. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will get his wish after pursuing the Man City academy graduate for the past two years.
There aren’t any issues on Sancho’s end with regards to personal terms, as United have been in contact with his agents since last summer. He’s expected to pen a deal until 2026.
Fans are elated as expected. Some of them will also be able to put an end to photoshopping Sancho into the United kit, now that he’ll soon officially don the iconic shirt.

Sancho with back to back to back seasons of getting 30+ goal contributions in all competitions and he’s still only 21 years of age. £75m is a bargain.

Manchester United getting Sancho for just £5m more than Pepe in this current market is ridiculously good business, wow.

Jadon Sancho was destined to play for the Red half of Manchester.

The 21-year-old failed to get a start in England’s three group games, and was also an unused sub in the Three Lions 2-0 victory over Germany in the last 16.
Now, with the long-drawn transfer behind him, the very talented winger would be able to fully focus on challenging the likes of Raheem Sterling and his new teammate Marcus Rashford to get into Gareth Southgate’s team.
Any kind of positive impact from Sancho in this summer’s European Championships would ease the impending pressure that would come with the huge fee the Premier League giants have coughed for his signing.
