Jadon Sancho’s goodbye message to Borussia Dortmund

The Jadon Sancho transfer saga is officially offer after the England winger completed his move from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United.

It was announced during the Euros that United had agreed a transfer fee for the England winger, but fans were made wait weeks for the announcement to arrive.

The wait is now over with Sancho set to wear the #25 shirt for United.

That gives Edinson Cavani one more year with the #7 shirt and it looks like it could be his final season in Europe before returning to South America, where he is expected to hang up his boots.

Sancho is understandably excited about the next chapter in his career and has already spoken about his ambitions as a Red.

He was also keen to thank Dortmund – a respected club that has helped him reach his dream of signing for United.

Upon leaving BVB, Sancho wrote a lengthy message on Instagram: “This is a hard message to swallow.

“First of all I just want to start off by thanking Borussia Dortmund for everything they have done for me, taking the risk on a young 17-year-old at the time with no first team experience and believing in me.

“The love I will always have for this iconic club will never be matched. From the very first moment I walked into the stadium I felt at home and knew I had made the right decision.

“I was welcomed with open arms by everyone associated with the club. Moving to Germany was not only football, I had to adapt to a new lifestyle and culture.

“Leaving the UK when I was 17 was seen as a big risk for some, as I was not only going to play abroad but I was leaving home and family. I’ve always wanted to showcase my talent on the global stage and Dortmund gave me the opportunity to do so, for that I will forever be grateful. For all the amazing staff, coaches, everyone involved in the club, I want to say a massive thank you again for looking after me during my time as a club. I will miss you all dearly.

“I’m privileged to have shared the pitch with every Dortmund player that has been at the club. I’ve learnt so much from all of you talented players. Thank you for playing a part in me bettering myself as a player and understanding the game of football at a top level.

“To the club, you made a young kid dream. You made me who I am today. I was able to gain experience as quickly as possible at such a young age and was able to achieve historic milestones. This club gave me a chance to play in the Champions League, every kid’s dream. This club also gave me the profile to represent my country. I owe a lot to this amazing club.

“Dortmund will always be a part of me and I will always miss, love and be grateful to the club, the team and especially the supporters who supported me through thick and thin. I hope you can respect my decision. The most beautiful part of friendship is to understand and to be understood.

“Danke Schon BVB.”
