Manchester United have completed the landing of England star Jadon Sancho on a five-year contract with the option of a further one year, the club confirmed on Friday.

Borussia Dortmund had previously announced the agreement, stating on July 1 that the transfer sum is “fixed” at €85 million.

The Red Devils also confirmed that the summer deal had been initially agreed to, subject to a medical after his country’s participation at Euro 2020.

He said: “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.”

The transfer officially brings to an end a transfer story which has gone on for nearly 18 months. United tried to land Sancho last summer but failed to agree on a sum with Dortmund.

The German giants lowered their asking from £108 million and after seeing at least two offers knocked back the Manchester-based outfit were finally able to reach a full agreement this summer.

Sancho leaves Die Borussen after making 137 appearances, netting 50 goals, in four years in Germany. Jason was named in the Bundesliga team of the season in 2019 and 2020.
