New Manchester United signing Jadon Sancho is set to feature against Leeds United in the club’s Premier League opener on Saturday. The much anticipated marquee signing of the Summer has been training with the team all week, and is reportedly approaching match sharpness.
Solskjær: "Jadon [Sancho] is going to be involved [against Leeds]. He's had a good week. Unfortunately he was ill after his holiday so he's miss out on a few days of training — can't tell you if he is going to start though." #mulive— utdreport (@utdreport) August 13, 2021
Sancho has spoken about his excitement already, and in an interview with Rio Ferdinand expressed his desire to play as soon as possible:
Leeds are a high intensity opponent, and notably stood out last season in a couple of thrillers against Liverpool and Manchester City early in their Premier League campaign. It could be a match where sharpness of players is crucial to achieving all 3 points, but Sancho’s attacking prowess may be needed as well.
