Jadon Sancho has four-word response on Man United exit as transfer confirmation nears

Jadon Sancho has four-word response on Man United exit as transfer confirmation nears

Jadon Sancho has sent a message of encouragement to Donny van de Beek following the Dutchman’s farewell post to Manchester United fans.

Van de Beek will leave United after four years to join La Liga side Girona, as reported earlier this week by MEN Sport, bringing an end to the Dutchman’s disappointing spell at Old Trafford.

The 27-year-old arrived at United as one of Europe’s brightest prospects but has failed to gain regular game time due to a lack of form and injury problems.

Despite not living up to expectations, Van de Beek nevertheless seems grateful for his time in Manchester and shared the following words on social media confirming his departure: “Dear Manchester United family, Today is a memorable day as my adventure at the club comes to an end. I want to thank everyone for their support over the years. From the moment we arrived at Manchester United, we have been made to feel extremely welcome and for that we are grateful.

“Thank you to everyone at the club for making us feel at home. A special thank you to all the fans who have made these past few years unforgettable. Aside from football, the birth of our two sons here ensures that Manchester will always have a special place in our hearts. Good luck to everyone, we will meet again.”

Responding to the post, Sancho said: “All the best, brother,” while he and many other United players wished the Ajax academy graduate well as he prepares for his next chapter.

Sancho’s own future is far from certain following the player’s public fallout with Erik ten Hag last season, which resulted in the winger being dropped from the first team.

Ten Hag was full of praise for Sancho following his impressive performance in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Paris Saint-Germain in May, although he refused to give an answer on the player’s long-term future under his management.

“Yesterday he showed why Manchester United bought him and why he represents a high value for Manchester United. That’s good. I’m happy for Jadon, with his performance yesterday. We’ll see what happens in the future,” said Ten Hag.
