Video: All smiles as Jadon Sancho joins Man United training for the first time
Footage of Manchester United summer recruit Jadon Sancho taking to the club’s training pitches for the first time has, on Monday, come to the fore online.
Reds making moves
The headline news at Old Trafford over the last couple of weeks has of course come in the form of the club’s efforts on the transfer front.
This comes as the Red Devils hierarchy finally go about building the kind of squad capable of launching a concerted push for major silverware over the years to come.
Such efforts, thus far, have proven altogether fruitful, with one statement signing set to be followed by another in short order.
First, after what felt like a lifetime of negotiations between the clubs, United finally confirmed that a deal for English international Jadon Sancho had been struck with Borussia Dortmund on the 23rd of July.
And this has since been followed by the announcement that Sancho is set to be joined at the Theatre of Dreams by one of world football’s finest defenders.
The player in question? Raphael Varane.

In turn, with United set to kick the club’s campaign off in a Premier League showdown with Leeds United this weekend, the Red Devils faithful, over recent days, have understandably begun to pose the question of whether the latest additions to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad could be involved.
With Raphael Varane’s arrival yet to actually be made official, the Frenchman’s participation, as things stand, looks unlikely.
As outlined above, though, if the latest footage emerging from United’s Carrington training base is anything to go by, then the possibility of Sancho being handed his bow this weekend cannot be ruled out.
This comes with the explosive wide-man having this afternoon taken part in his first individualised training session, overseen by the Reds’ coaching staff:
