Jadon Sancho has said he wants to help bring back trophies to Manchester United after joining English football giants Borussia Dortmund of Germany in a مل 73 million ($ 100 million) deal.
The 21-year-old former England international has signed a five-year deal with the one-year option.
United have not won a trophy since the 2017 Europa League, with the last victory of the famous Yemen manager Alex Ferguson in the last season before retiring eight years ago.
“It’s an honor to join the Red Devils,” Sancho told manutd.com.
“Growing up, Manchester United was one of the biggest clubs everyone knows, and obviously there are all the trophies he has won.
“That’s one of the reasons I came to Manchester, because I can see the progress here and I want to be a part of it, especially since it’s such a popular club and being a part of it. It’s a dream come true. “
Unlike many young English players, Sancho decided to pursue a career abroad by joining Dortmund as a 17-year-old after failing to make the Manchester City first team.
And the forward had no doubt about his four-year influence in the Bundesliga, including playing in the Champions League.
“It helped me grow as a player and gave me the experience to play in the Champions League and make sense of the big games,” Sancho said.
“I feel like I’ve done well in these big games and now I’m ready for a new challenge and a big step.
He added, “(I) am eager to win and will be determined to win trophies. Here and there there are goals and support and lots of skills.
Sancho’s move at Old Trafford follows a long pursuit by the United States, which was reportedly stopped by Dortmund’s initial m 100m price tag.
Sancho, along with new United teammates Marcus Rashford and Bokayo Saka, announced the deal at Wembley after Italy were abused by Germany in the final of the 2020 Euros.
United manager Oli Gunnar Solskjیرr, describing Sancho as an “unused qualification”, was happy to find his man.
“We’ve been following it for a long time and decided to go for it and finally we made progress and came to an agreement,” he said.
“We think it will fit well at Man United. I believe there is some unmatched talent there and coming into this environment will also help improve it.”
“The Magic is a sign that we expect to stay at Man United for many, many years to come, so it’s part of that that we have a young, coming and going line.”
Soulskier, himself a former United striker, led the club to a second-place finish in last season’s Premier League with a huge margin of 12 points from champions Manchester City.
However, Norway believes that Sancho could help bring the silverware back to Old Trafford.
“They’ve got the DNA of interesting fans and entertainers, and they’re the winners,” Solsker said.
“He wants to win and that’s the next step for us. We have to take the next step, we want to take the next step and we think he can help us do that.”
