Jadon Sancho has expressed his joy at finally being a Manchester United player and linking up with his England team-mates at Old Trafford.

The 21-year-old came off the bench against Leeds and Southampton before making his first start in the 1-0 win over Wolves, And the former Borussia Dortmund man has vowed to replicate his Bundesliga form for his new side.

Speaking to UMM, Sancho said, "I haven't stopped smiling. I'm just happy to be here and be part of the Red Devils and the team. Especially when I made my debut - the lads have been very good with me and made it easier.

"I'm going to keep playing my game. I'm not going to change what I've been doing over in Germany. I've just got to bring it here and hopefully I can show the fans what I can deliver."

Sancho also admitted that he is looking forward to linking up with Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford at United. "That's going to be a crazy link up when Marcus gets back," Sancho said.

"Obviously I've seen a bit of Mason recently in training - he's crazy. We're still getting to know each other, obviously movements and things like that, getting our understanding, but it's going to be crazy all three of us on the pitch."

Sancho added that Euro 2020 was the best time of his life, and said: "I would say so (on Euro 2020 being the best five weeks of his life). It was a big stage for me - my first major tournament with my national team. But also one of my biggest downs, obviously missing the penalties and receiving the racial abuse.

"But the team are fantastic. The month we were there, it was a great feeling playing in front of our home crowd and the mandem supporting."
