Manchester United's latest signing Jadon Sancho has gone on and revealed how Cristiano Ronaldo has had a major impact on his career up till now.

Sancho has finally made his long awaited transfer to the Old Trafford based club for a reported fee of £73m from Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

In his first interview as a Manchester United player, Sancho admitted that Ronaldo is a player that he has always looked up too and that the Portuguese has been an inspiration for his career.

"Who do I model my game on? I feel like everyone is different, I have different attributes to other players but Cristiano Ronaldo," Sancho said in his first interview for United's official website

"What he's done in his career is a fantastic thing. He started at Sporting Lisbon and then he came to Manchester so it's always good to see these iconic players come through iconic clubs. It's nice to see."

Finally on being asked what he hopes to add to Manchester United, Sancho concluded, "[I'm] Eager to win. Determined to win trophies. Goals and assists. A bit of skills here and there."

After completing the move for Sancho, United are now looking to wrap up the deal for Raphael Varane before possibly attempting to sort out their central-defensive midfield position in order to make this summer a 10/10 transfer window for them.
