Manchester United finally announced their agreement in principle to sign Jadon Sancho yesterday.
One of the longest-running sagas in the club’s history is finally over and Sancho will complete his medical after England’s Euro 2020 campaign is done.
Luke Shaw is currently away on England duty with Sancho and told the Lions Den on YouTube that he has already been spending plenty of time with his new teammate.
He said he sits with Sancho and Marcus Rashford on the way to games and referred to United’s pursuit of Sancho during the interview.
“We have a sort of table now, there’s me, Rashy (Marcus Rashford), Sanch (Jadon Sancho). Hopefully the United table,” said Shaw. “You never know!”
“We’ll keep that, I think, everyone likes to keep their spot on the coach. We’re playing a lot of Uno, there’s a lot of card games going on.”
Shaw’s comments were broadcast last night after the Sancho deal was announced but likely filmed before it was made official.
The left-back starred as England beat Germany on Tuesday and on that game, he added: “We tried not to big the occasion up but the game speaks for itself.
“We knew how big the game was. The celebrations and the joy we brought to them is something you can’t ask for. It was brilliant.”
Sancho should settle quickly
Sancho knows Manchester well, having been there as a younger player and his England teammates should help him settle well at Old Trafford.
He’s basically been acting like a United player with England anyway, spending time with Rashford and Shaw on the way to games.
That pair, as well as Harry Maguire will help Sancho settle in within no time.
It also helps that United have finally done a transfer deal early on in a window.
That means Sancho will join pre-season at the earliest possible opportunity. Last season, Alex Telles and Edinson Cavani didn’t get any pre-season at all because they were signed on deadline day and that doesn’t help a player.
