England winger Jadon Sancho has completed a £73m move to Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund.
Following the move, Sancho became the second most expensive English player of all time behind his new United team-mate Harry Maguire.
He joined Manchester United on a five-year deal.
“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,” 21-year-old Sancho said.
“The chance to join Manchester United is a dream come true and I just can’t 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.”
United agreed the fee for Sancho on 1 July and his five-year contract with the club has a further 12 month option.
The completion of the deal brings to an end United’s protracted pursuit of former Manchester City player Sancho. They had expected to sign him last summer but could not agree on a fee.
Sancho, 21, scored 50 goals and registered 64 assists in four seasons with Borussia Dortmund. The England International was part of the squad that reached the final of Euro 2020.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Old Trafford will give Sancho “the platform he needs to release his untapped talent”.
“Jadon epitomises the type of player I want to bring to the club – he is a forward player in the best traditions of Manchester United,” Solskjaer told the club website.
“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’s return to the English game comes after he helped the national team reach the final of the European Championship, where they were beaten on penalties by Italy.
The former City youth player, along with Bukayo Saka and now United team-mate Marcus Rashford, were subjected to racial abuse on social media after they failed to score in the decisive shootout.
