The move of the English national soccer player Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United is official.

This was announced by BVB and United.

The English record champions pay a fixed transfer fee of 85 million euros for the flank player.

The 21-year-old receives a five-year contract plus an option.

The transfer of Sancho is one of the most expensive in the history of the Bundesliga.

“It was Jadon's express wish to go back to his home country and the Premier League, and he behaved absolutely correctly at all times.

I would therefore like to thank him on behalf of all Borussia, «said managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke.

Sancho's contract in Dortmund was still valid until June 30, 2023. “I can't thank the people in charge at Borussia Dortmund enough for the opportunity they gave me as a very young player.

At BVB I was able to mature into the player I am today, «he said.

Both clubs had already communicated the general agreement on the transfer at the beginning of the month.

+++ RUMOR +++

However, BVB is said to have already found a replacement: According to media reports, the Dutch international Donyell Malen is moving from PSV Eindhoven to Dortmund.

As the "Eindhoven Dagblad" and "Voetbal International" reported, both clubs should be largely in agreement.

According to reports, just under 30 million euros plus possible bonus payments are due for Malen, who is supposed to sign a five-year contract.

If everything goes according to plan, the attacker planned to replace Sancho is likely to join the team at the training camp in Bad Ragaz.

The 22-year-old can be used on the offensive flanks or as a second striker, he impresses above all with his speed and technique.

Last season he was involved in 37 goals (27 goals and ten assists) in 45 competitive games at PSV.

At the European Championship, the Dutchman was used in four games and provided two assists.
