“I’ll always be grateful to Dortmund for giving me the opportunity to play first team football,” Jadon Sancho said.
“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 joins Solskjaer’s side after an excellent four-year spell at Dortmund.
He scored 50 goals in all competitions for Dortmund.
Sancho also became the first player in Bundesliga history to provide 50 assists inside 100 appearances in February.
He won the German Cup and broke into the England senior team during his time abroad.
Sancho’s £73m move to Old Trafford was confirmed on July 1 and it makes him the second most expensive England player of all time.
