Erling Haaland has congratulated Jadon Sancho after his now-former Borussia Dortmund teammate finally completed his move to Manchester United.

The Premier League giants finally confirmed the arrival of the England international following a transfer saga that has spanned the last four windows.

Sancho looked on course to join United last summer having agreed personal terms, but the move collapsed late in the day with Dortmund refusing to cave on their £120m valuation.

The 21-year-old was consequently forced to remain with the Bundesliga club for another season, during which his partnership and friendship with Haaland flourished.

Norway international Haaland, himself, is a wanted man this summer but he appears likely to remain at Dortmund, despite significant interest from the likes of Chelsea.

Regardless of his own future, Haaland was delighted to see Sancho finally complete his dream move to Old Trafford and is hoping to see the talented winger light up the Premier League.

Speaking for the first time, meanwhile, since finally landing his primary transfer target, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer struggled to hide his delight.

‘Jadon epitomises the type of player I want to bring to the club, he is a forward player in the best traditions of Manchester United,’ explained the Norwegian manager.

‘He will form an integral part of my squad for years to come and we look forward to seeing him blossom.

‘His goals and assists records speak for themselves and he will also bring tremendous pace, flair and creativity to the team.

‘Old Trafford will give him the platform he needs to release his untapped talent and perform at the highest level.

‘For a player of his age, Jadon has already achieved a great deal and showed the courage to go and prove himself abroad.

‘We all look forward to welcoming Jadon to the squad as we prepare for the new campaign.’
