Rio Ferdinand has welcomed Jadon Sancho to Manchester United after an agreement was reached with Borussia Dortmund for his transfer. The 12-month long transfer saga is finally set to end with a move expected to be finalised after this summer’s European Championships.
Sancho’s future has been the main talking point of the transfer window so far, from a Manchester United perspective, and fans were elated when news of the deal broke on social media.
Rio Ferdinand, one of many public advocates of the move, has now welcomed the former Manchester City player to the red side of the city on social media.

“Welcome to Manchester, my guy,” Ferdinand wrote in his short but very satisfying tweet.
After completing a deal for Sancho, the club is now expected to ‘go all out’ for a centre-back in the transfer market. Raphael Varane remains one of Solskjaer’s targets this season but whether an agreement can be reached with Real Madrid remains to be seen.
