“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,” Sancho told United’s official website.
“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.”
Manchester United had shown great interest in the forward last season but were turned off by Dortmund’s 108m price tag on the forward. However, the price on the forward dropped to 85m earlier this year and ManUtd pounced on it negotiating a further 21m drop before completing the deal.
