Manchester United fans were hoping to see Jadon Sancho in action this summer. But so far the upcoming signing of the Red Devils has hardly played a role at Euro 2020.
England did well without him. But it’s still bizarre that a player with 16 goals and 20 assists barely gets a glimpse of his country last season.
If Germany fans can’t believe that Sancho didn’t start against them, the influence he had in the Bundesliga is clear. But the winger’s summer fights could actually be a good thing for United.
As reported by the BBC, United has agreed a fee of £ 73m for the player. And if the move goes as expected, Sancho will be desperate to show fans closer to home what he can do.
The 21-year-old shines regularly for his club. But his international successes are less impressive.
That doesn’t take away from its quality. After all, United fans would not accept the rigidity England play with.
When he arrives at Old Trafford, Sancho is allowed to do his own thing. And what kind of thing is that.

With 50 goals and 64 assists in 137 club games, United’s seemingly imminent signing is just beginning.
He will be desperately trying to make a name for himself at Euro 2020. But whatever happens, he will know that he has an ideal chance to show Premier League fans that he is so much more than just a substitute.
Make up for lost time
This may not be Sancho’s tournament. But his time will come.
In the meantime, expect him to wear a United shirt next season.
The winger has only managed six minutes for his country in the tournament so far. He could still play an important role as the Three Lions hunt their first major trophy since 1966. But United might prefer it to save all the pent-up frustration for national action.
A sancho with a point to prove could be a damn good watch.
