So, Jadon Sancho is finally a Manchester United Player.

The English club officially announced the signing of the 21-year-old on Friday afternoon and the Red Devils fans are understandably excited.

Sancho has developed into one of the best wingers in world football at Borussia Dortmund and will have the task of helping United in the fight for the Premier League title in 2021/22.

If he can do just that, the former Manchester City striker will be worth every single penny of his £ 76.50m transfer fee.

That huge number makes Sancho the third most expensive player in Premier League history, behind only Harry Maguire and Paul Pogba.

Maguire is also the only English player to have cost more than United’s latest acquisition.

With Sancho’s transfer fee in mind, we decided to create a full team made up of the most expensive signings of the Premier League era.

Sancho, Maguire and Pogba are all there and you take a look at our team in full below, with all transfer prices from Transfermarkt.

The XI in full length

United is responsible for four of the mega money transfers in our XI, while Tottenham Hotspur is the only member of the Premier League’s Top Six not to have a new addition to the team.

It’s a bit of a surprise to see City only appear twice, though that could change if they secure deals for Harry Kane and Jack Grealish this summer.
