Jadon Sancho is a Manchester United player at last. But before he kicks off his United career, he has expressed an emotional goodbye to his former club.
Sancho penned a heartfelt message to Dortmund on Instagram, thanking the club for trusting him and helping him become the player he is today.
Sancho left Manchester City to join Dortmund and has been a regular at the club for the past three seasons.
He will become a key player in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI next season and his ability to play on either the left or right wing will be extremely valuable.
The move to the Premier League is a new challenge for Sancho and one he needs after excelling in Germany.
His combination of creativity, trickery, and goalscoring ability should see him thrive. Manchester United will be a more entertaining and exciting team thanks to his arrival.
His United contract runs until 2026 with an option to extend until 2027. If it all goes well, he could stay even longer.
