Jadon Sancho is joining Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund for $100 million US, the clubs confirmed on Thursday.
The winger still has to complete his contract and undergo medical tests with United after he finishes with England at the European Championship.

The 21-year-old Sancho is yet to start for England at the tournament heading into the quarter-finals, despite his growing stature.
Now he is set for City’s fierce local rival to help United’s bid to dethrone its neighbour as Premier League champion. The new season starts for United on Aug. 14 against Leeds.
Sancho become the second most expensive English player behind Harry Maguire, who United signed two years ago from Leicester for $97 million.
