So, Jadon Sancho is finally a Manchester United player.

The English club officially announced the signing of the 21-year-old on Friday afternoon and Red Devils fans are understandably excited.

Sancho evolved into one of the finest wingers in world football at Borussia Dortmund and he will be tasked with helping United challenge for the Premier League title in 2021/22.

If he can do just that, the former Manchester City forward will be worth every single penny of his £76.50 million transfer fee.

That enormous figure makes Sancho the third-most expensive player in Premier League history, behind only Harry Maguire and Paul Pogba.

Maguire is also the only English player to have cost more than United's latest acquisition.

It's a slight surprise to see that City only feature twice, although if they secure deals for Harry Kane and Jack Grealish this summer, that may change.
