Jadon Sancho To Be “Announced Soon” Amid Paperwork DelayGriffochaz
Jadon Sancho will be announced as a Man United player “soon” according to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Following United’s 2-1 victory against Derby in pre season, Solskjaer confirmed the £72.9m transfer of Jadon Sancho will be completed after the final of the paperwork has been completed.
The 21-year-old winger is understood to have successfully completed his medical and has agreed terms with the Red Devils but there is a single piece of paperwork that is the cause for the delay.
United hoped to announce the signing this week however with this delay it is looking more to next week somewhen.
“From what I understand only paperwork, small little details, hopefully we can announce something,” Solskjaer said.
“Let’s get all the paperwork done and get him over the line and then I can say what I truly feel about the player.”
Man United won their first pre season friendly 2-1 against Derby County, who are managaed by Red Devil legend Wayne Rooney.
Goals from Tahith Chong, who is set to join Birmingham on loan, and Facundo Pellistri won United the game.
The friendly also saw the club return of Jesse Lingard and Tom Heaton, both of whom put in decent displays.
The full match report will be available on the site tomorrow.
