Man Utd sign Sancho: How will they line up this season?
Manchester United have completed the signing of Jadon Sacho from Borussia Dortmund.
The Red Devils and Dortmund have been locked in talks for months now over the talented winger, and recently agreed on a £73 million transfer fee.
Sancho has emerged as Man Utd's primary transfer target this summer, much like he was a year ago.
In the summer of 2020 both clubs were in contact over Sancho, but Dortmund refused to budge on their £100m valuation at that time.
Due to the financial impact of the pandemic, BVB have accepted the lower offer 12 months later.
So how will Man Utd line up with Sancho?
Man Utd probable team with Jadon Sancho
Man Utd were famously involved in one of the biggest transfer sagas of the 2020 summer market when they tried to sign Sancho.
After failing to meet Dortmund’s asking price by the deadline set, Sancho ended up remaining in the Bundesliga this season.
“In the end, the requirements were not met,” sporting director Michael Zorc said of last year’s negotiations.
But, now that the deal is complete, Man Utd have addressed a problem position down the right wing.
The striker role is up for grabs. Edinson Cavani has extended his contract following his brilliant end to the season, while Mason Greenwood would likely be chosen ahead of Anthony Martial until another number 9 is signed.
Nevertheless, the future of Pogba should be kept an eye on given his contract runs out next year.
As for Sancho, he enjoyed another outstanding 2020/21 season, registering 16 goals and 19 assists in 34 starts for Dortmund.
