JADON SANCHO has completed his medical at Manchester United with an official announcement of his £73million move expected in the next 48 hours.
Just two days after crucially missing a penalty kick in the Euro 2020 final shoot-out against Italy, Sancho was at United’s Carrington training ground on Tuesday to take the next step in his career.
There was no problem with the medical.
And now an official unveiling of him in the club’s new kit is imminent.
This ends a year-long pursuit of the Borussia Dortmund winger after United failed to land him last summer.
The Bundesliga club were asking over £100million which United refused to pay for such a young player.
They were always confident of the deal eventually going through with Sancho himself determined to make the move.
The 21-year-old will now have three weeks off before returning to training with his fellow Three-Lions stars Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford.
Having come through Watford and then Manchester City’s academy, Sancho was a star in the Bundesliga, scoring 50 goals in 137 appearances for Dortmund.
The signing is a major boost for Solskjaer, who just missed out on his first trophy as manager last season with his own penalty heartache in the Europa League Final.
But after improving in the league to finish runners-up he is confident of a title tilt this season.
Solskjaer said: "If you win a penalty shoot-out, that’s a successful season. If you lose it, it’s just doom and gloom.
"So, well, I’m sure the players will have recharged and know what’s up and we’re a team on the up, improving all the time.
"The coaches will be demanding as ever because standards need to keep going up. I’m sure other teams will be too."
Solskjaer also backed Marcus Rashford after he also missed a spot-kick in the shootout.
