Jadon Sancho Was Told 'Don't Do That Again' By Vincent Kompany In Manchester City Training

Harry Maguire best be on alert because Jadon Sancho has a habit of nutmegging club captains.

The 21-year-old's long-awaited move to Manchester United has been announced, with a deal agreed in principle for Sancho's return to English football.

United and Borussia Dortmund settled on a £73 million fee that will be paid in installments, with Sancho poised to undergo a medical and complete the transfer after the European Championship this summers

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."
