Jadon Sancho has finished his medical ahead of the impending completion of his £73million move to Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund.
Although the 21-year-old has not been pictured arriving at the club’s Carrington training base, a blacked out van arrived there on Tuesday amid suggestions Sancho is putting the finishing touches on his highly anticipated move.
Sancho was one of three England players to have missed from the penalty spot in Sunday’s Euro 2020 final defeat by Italy at Wembley. Marcus Rashford, who is about to become his new United team-mate, failed to convert along with Bukayo Saka.
After completing the medical, Sancho is expected to go on holiday and rest up but he will only have three weeks off before joining up with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.
United’s Premier League season kicks off on August 14, when they host Leeds at Old Trafford.
Sancho’s arrival is significant for United boss Solskjaer – he was eager to recruit the England international last summer but the Red Devils failed to agree terms with Dortmund.
The German club came to an agreement with Sancho that if he stayed for another season, they would agree to sell him if a team met their asking price this summer which United have finally done with their £73m bid.
Sancho leaves Dortmund with 50 goals in 137 matches for the German outfit, providing 64 assists as well. It is a formidable record and at just 21, has his best years ahead of him.
