• Jadon Sancho is set to move to Manchester United this summer
  • He has been their top target for over a year now
  • He is looking forward to his new life in Manchester

Jadon Sancho opened up Sunday on playing alongside his England teammates Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire at Manchester United ahead of his move to Old Trafford this summer.

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sancho finally started for England in the ongoing Euros 2020 Sunday when his side thrashed Ukraine 4-0 to qualify for the semi-final.

After chasing Sancho for over a year, Manchester United finally reached an agreement with Dortmund recently, but the move is still subject to medicals that would be conducted after his stint at the European Championship.

In a post-match interview Sunday after England’s win over Ukraine in the last-eight stage, on being asked about his upcoming new chapter in Manchester, Sancho said he was excited about it.

“Luke is a great lad. I always have a good relationship with him, Marcus [Rashford] and Harry [Maguire] so it’s going to be fun,” Sancho told talkSPORT.

Sancho also gets along well with the players of the other Manchester club – City and North London club Tottenham.

In the same interview, Sancho spoke about his partnership with City forward Raheem Sterling that helped Spurs’ Harry Kane score two goals in England’s 4-0 win over Ukraine in the Euros on Sunday.

"We knew that me and Raheem, on the wings, had to go at them and create space for Harry Kane. I thought we did so and that’s how we got the goals tonight so I’m very happy for the team and especially for Harry Kane. Me and Raz [Sterling], we always switch. We can play right, left, or in the middle. It’s not a problem for both of us. We just keep switching. Let’s say if it’s a counter attack, I’m on the left, he’s on the right, we just stay in those positions and whenever we want to switch, we’ll switch," added Sancho.

Prior to the Ukraine game, Sancho had received only six minutes of game time across four matches in the Euros 2020.

Pointing out that, Manchester United defender Shaw said that Sancho was not disappointed for being ignored for the previous games but he kept working hard.

"He hasn’t had too much game time, he’s obviously been, not disappointed but wanting to play like everyone else. He’s kept his head down, he’s kept working hard and I feel like tonight he took his chance. He showed people why we’re buying him and of course, even though I was on the pitch, I was really impressed with his performance. I’m obviously looking forward to him becoming a Manchester United player and I will keep getting on to him to keep those high standards up. Today I was really happy and proud of his performance," Shaw told talkSPORT Sunday.
