Before moving to Manchester United, Sancho spent the summer at the European Championships with England. During this time, many players were attempting to convince the 21-year-old to join their club.

Speaking to Sky Germany, Sancho said: “I’ve met Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw with the national team. They always said: Come to United. There were also the guys from Chelsea and Liverpool, who all tried to convince me of their club, but it only really got serious after the European Championship.”
