Manchester United and England duo Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho have jetted off on holiday together after the latter completed his club medical.

A video on social media showed the pair on a private plane singing together ahead of their first season playing at the same club.

Rashford will be heading into his seventh campaign in the Red Devils’ first team, while Sancho will be playing in his first for United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side haven’t officially announced Sancho yet but it is expected to be confirmed imminently.

Reports believe the 21-year-old’s move from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund is worth £72.9m and his medical is believed to have gone perfectly.

United recently unveiled their kit for the 21/22 campaign which is thought to have put a delay on the club revealing Sancho as their new star.

While Sancho completed pre-season formalities at United, he and Rashford will now have a three week break after being a part of Gareth Southgate’s 26-man Euro 2020 squad.

England reached the final, their first in a major tournament for 55 years, but lost on penalties to Italy following missed attempts by Rashford, Sancho and Arsenal star Bukayo Saka.

After the match the players were subjected to racist abuse on social media and Rashford’s mural in Manchester was defaced.









Both stars have spoken publicly since about their penalty misses and the abuse they received.

Rashford, 23, said: “I can take critique of my performance all day long, my penalty was not good enough, it should have gone in but I will never apologise for who I am and where I came from.

“I’ve felt no prouder moment than wearing those three lions on my chest and seeing my family cheer me on in a crowd of 10s of thousands. I dreamt of days like this. The messages I’ve received today have been positively overwhelming and seeing the response in Withington had me on the verge of tears.







“The communities that always wrapped their arms around me continue to hold me up. I’m Marcus Rashford, 23 year old, black man from Withington and Wythenshawe, South Manchester. If I have nothing else I have that.”

While Sancho added: “I’m not going pretend that I didn’t see the racial abuse that me and my brothers Marcus and Bukayo received after the game, but sadly it’s nothing new.

“As a society we need to do better, and hold these people accountable.

“Hate will never win.”
