We have agreed a deal in principle for the transfer of Jadon Sancho to United! :red_circle::white_circle::black_circle:#MUFC
Manchester City, his former employers, will receive around £11 million due to a sell-on clause inserted in the deal that took him to Dortmund.
In one of his first training sessions with the German club, Sancho was given a stern warning from captain Marcel Schmelzer after a nutmeg.
In fact, that wasn't the only occasion Sancho nutmegged an opponent and felt the consequences.
In a City training session, Vincent Kompany was fooled by Sancho - a skill move he wasn't best pleased with.
"I nutmegged the captains of Dortmund (Marcel Schmelzer) and City (Vincent Kompany) and they said: 'don't do that again.' They don't like it." he revealed in an interview with JD Sports.
Sancho, as we know, loves rinsing opposition defenders after honing his skills playing street football in South London and growing up idolising the ultimate footballing showman in Ronaldinho.
Speaking to SPORTbible in 2019, Sancho said: "For me personally I just like to show what I have and just try and do everything for my team - if it does include a nutmeg then it includes a nutmeg. I'm more than happy to get the crowd cheering, get excited and stand on their feet."
