£76 million Jadon Sancho issues first message to Manchester United after completing transfer move
Jadon Sancho has been opening up after officially wrapping up his move to Manchester United
Regarded as one of the finest, most exciting and one of the most creative young players in the game, Sancho has bene on the radar of United for the last few seasons and they have been working on a deal for the last few windows.
But after months, and months and months of speculation, Sancho completed a move to Old Trafford from Borussia Dortmund on Friday in a deal worth £73 million ($101m), and asked who his childhood heroes were in his first interview since joining the Red Devils, Sancho told the club’s official website: “Ronaldinho and obviously Wayne Rooney for England – those two are very iconic and great role models.
“I feel like everyone’s different and I feel like I’ve got different attributes to all the other players, but obviously Cristiano Ronaldo and what he’s done in his career is a fantastic thing.
“Where he started at Sporting and then he came to Manchester so it’s always good to see that all these iconic players have come through an iconic club.”
He said: “To be fair when I was younger, on my estate in south London I just used to watch the older boys playing around and ever since then I just used to join in with them and started to fall in love with it, and then in school it was just always football and even after school it was just football. That’s when it got serious.
“It was definitely cage football – all of that kind of FIFA Street, so when we saw the Ronaldinho adverts of him nutmegging people that’s what we tried to do.”
United have a seriously brilliant player on their books now, so fans will be looking forward to seeing just what he is able to do in the Premier League
