New Manchester United signing Jadon Sancho says his move to Old Trafford is "a dream come true."

The 21-year-old was speaking to the Manchester United media team after he completed his move from Borussia Dortmund for a reported £73m fee.

Sancho who has signed a deal until 2026 with the Old Trafford giants said, "I’ll always be grateful to Dortmund for giving me the opportunity to play first-team football, although I always knew that I would return to England one day."

"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."

"I am looking forward to working with the Manager and his coaching team to further develop my game."

Sancho who was part of the England squad that reached the finals of EURO 2020, scored 50 goals and made 64 assists in four seasons with Borussia Dortmund. 

Speaking about his new signing after his unveiling to the media, manager Ole Gunner Solskjaer described the England international as a "forward player in the best traditions of Manchester United."

He said, "Jadon epitomizes the type of player I want to bring to the club, He will form an integral part of my squad for years to come and we look forward to seeing him blossom."

"His goals and assists records speak for themselves and he will also bring tremendous pace, flair and creativity to the team."

Sancho will wear the number 25 jersey at the club.
