Sancho has agreed terms with Manchester United but the club are yet to officially announce the signing and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken about the situation


Manchester United still need to finalise paperwork before they announce Jadon Sancho as their player for the new campaign, according to manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It was confirmed earlier this month that the England midfielder had agreed to sign for £72.9m from Borussia Dortmund.

United fans have been becoming impatient with their club for not officially announcing the news and Solskjaer has shed some light on the situation.

He spoke after of the Red Devils' first pre-season friendly on Sunday against former United star Wayne Rooney's Derby.

Solskjaer said: "From what I understand only paperwork, small little details, hopefully we can announce something.

"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."

The Premier League club dispatched of Derby 2-1 and the boss added it was a great challenge for them ahead of the upcoming season.

"The first game is always difficult, it's the first test of 45 minutes, big pitch, took a bit of time to get going, loads of young players getting their chance to play with some of the first-team ones.

"Tom [Heaton] was very positive, he's here to give the other ones a little bit of a challenge as well. He's conducted himself so well throughout his career. I was just on the end of my career when he was coming up, so I'm so happy to have him.

"We've got a young team, a young squad, to have players like him come in, Granty stayed on, Nemanja and Jesse, those two played really well.

"Tom wants to play as well, I think he's been unlucky with an injury last season. I think he would have been in the England squad if not. Of course, he's got ambitions."

And Rooney himself added he was happy with his side's performance despite the loss.

He said: "I think it's important I try and progress not only the players who are here, the senior players, but also some of the young players at the club.

"A few of them have been with us throughout the last few weeks and it's important we see how they play against, obviously not Manchester United's strongest team, but they could come on and they didn't seem intimidated at all.

"There's a few different changes but I think what pre-season is allowing me to do is to try and put my print on the team. Try and get us playing a style of football which I want to play."
