Jadon Sancho trained for Manchester United for the first time.
And we have all the pictures available to share. Here’s a look at Sancho in action at Carrington, at last.
United fans have been waiting for this for a long time. Even after the transfer has been announced.
The club’s agreement with Dortmund was first confirmed on July 1st.
Fans had been hoping he would train with the team last week, but with a slight delay. He’s here now and it’s worth the wait.

Sancho appeared to be training individually in the session, and he will have the opportunity to meet up with his teammates later in the week.
Sancho wants to show his fitness to coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the coaching staff so that they can play the first game of the Premier League season at home against Leeds on Saturday.
The winger will most likely act as a substitute but with Marcus Rashford, Amad and possibly Anthony Elanga all unavailable, Sancho could be rushed.
