Jadon Sancho is now officially a Manchester United player after completing his long-awaited €85 million transfer from Borussia Dortmund on Friday.

All attention will now turn to when Sancho makes his Man Utd debut as supporters begin to picture the 21-year-old in the famous red shirt.

However, Man United fans will have to wait a while longer before they see Sancho make his Red Devils bow.

When does Sancho return from holiday?

Having travelled to Euro 2020 with the England national team, Sancho has been granted extra holiday along with the other Man Utd players who played in the tournament.

It is understood that the winger has been given three weeks’ holiday from the time of England’s last game in the tournament.

This last game, of course, was the Euro 2020 final itself on Sunday 11 July which England lost on penalties to Italy after a 1-1 draw at Wembley.

Sancho was brought on just before the penalty shootout and unfortunately missed England’s penultimate spot-kick, with Gigi Donnarumma guessing the right way to save.

When does Sancho start Man Utd training?

So Sancho is expected to start training at Carrington on the week commencing Monday 2 August.

By that time, Man Utd will have already played four of their five pre-season friendlies.

They have already defeated Derby 2-1 and are due to play QPR, Brentford and Preston before the end of July.

That leaves Man United’s final friendly on Saturday 7 August at Old Trafford against Everton as Sancho’s possible debut.

His competitive debut could then arrive a week later as Man Utd kick off their new Premier League season against Leeds United at Old Trafford on Saturday 14 August.
