Harry Maguire speaks out on Manchester United's transfer deal for Jadon Sancho

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire is confident Jadon Sancho will have a ‘great career’ at Old Trafford following his £73m move from Borussia Dortmund.

Sancho will become a Red Devils player in the aftermath of England’s Euro 2020 campaign after Dortmund finally agreed to sell him to Premier League giants United.

Having thrived for club and country over the past few seasons, Sancho will be expected to hit the ground running at Old Trafford and Maguire expects him to be a hit.

The Manchester United captain said: ‘When he does sign, I’m sure he’s going to have a great career for United and be a big part of us being successful in the future.

‘Jadon’s a top player. He has exceptional talent even though he is still really young, although he has played so many games.

‘We’ve got some exceptional talent in his position in this England team so Jadon will bide his time, be patient and be ready when his opportunity comes.

‘I’ve been really impressed with the way he has been working in training. He’s really putting a shift in day in day out.

‘He has great pace as well and an eye for goal. I think, to play in a front-three, you’ve got to have an eye for goal and he’ll certainly add to that.

‘He can play in a number of positions but he often plays in a front-three on the right for Dortmund.

‘As I said, if you’re going to play in a front-three, you have got to have the ability to score goals. You can’t rely on the centre-forward all the time.

‘He brings that and brings excitement. He gets the ball, is quick and direct, and I’m really looking forward to that. I really am.’
