‘I don’t want to talk about Manchester United’: Jadon Sancho refuses to discuss his life-changing £73m switch to Old Trafford and insists his focus is on England’s Euro 2020 campaign after he started in Ukraine thumping
Jadon Sancho says he will avoid thinking about his move to Manchester United while England remain in Euro 2020.
United will finally land their top target Sancho after the two clubs agreed a compromise fee for the 21-year-old winger.
After long-running discussions which have taken place over the last two summers, Dortmund accepted United’s third offer of this window which will see them pay the £72.9m – understood to be spread over four years, with no further add-ons.

‘To be fair, I don’t want to talk about Manchester United. Right now I just want to focus on England.
‘I’m feeling over the moon. Today was must-win and I’m just happy to have got an opportunity to play. This is a special moment for me,’ he said.
‘Every time I haven’t been playing I’ve been going back to training and been giving it everything. I’ve just been focusing on myself while I’ve been at England. I’ve always been ready if I needed to come on.
‘We knew today was going to be a big game, Ukraine are a very good side. I’m delighted.’
Sancho is set to complete his move to Old Trafford, signing a five-year deal that runs until 2026 and undergo a medical, following England’s participation in the Euros.

United have been long-term admirers of Sancho, and were among a host of clubs interested in trying to sign him in 2017 before he left Manchester City for Dortmund.
Despite agreeing terms with the Premier League side, Sancho says he will not speak about Manchester United until the Euros are complete.
Sancho will be hoping to feature against Denmark in the semi-final on Wednesday and then hopefully the final against either Spain or Italy a week on Sunday.
