United missed out on top target Sancho, 21, last summer after failing to meet Dortmund’s eye-watering £108million asking price at the time but it was announced last week that one of the most drawn out transfer sagas in recent memory had been brought to an end.
The young attacker will be joining the Red Devils for a fee of around £71.3m and United supporters will no doubt have been watching on last night to get a glimpse their new arrival in action for England against Ukraine at Euro 2020.
However, it was their current player, Luke Shaw, who stole the limelight with another sublime performance for the Three Lions, with the left-back providing two assists in an emphatic 4-0 win at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico.
Asked about soon-to-be United team-mate, Sancho, shortly after England’s victory, Shaw told talkSPORT: ‘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.’
An upbeat Sancho said it was ‘going to be fun’ playing alongside Shaw, Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire at both club and international level over the coming years.
‘Luke is a great lad,’ Sancho said when told about Shaw’s praise.
‘I always have a good relationship with him, Marcus and Harry so it’s going to be fun.’
United’s new boy was especially pleased for Kane as the England captain further silenced his doubters following a slow start at the Euros.
‘We knew that me and Raheem [Sterling], on the wings, had to go at them and create space for Harry Kane,’ he added.
‘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, 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.’
