JADON SANCHO can expect a huge reception from a bumper pre-season crowd at Old Trafford on August 7 after the club announced free tickets for under-16s.
Manchester United’s new £73million signing from Borussia Dortmund has completed his medical at the club.
He has now been given a three week holiday following his exploits with England in Euro 2020.
His first game in a Red Devils shirt will come on August 7 in a pre-season home friendly against Everton.
And United have now announced a price cut for that game and their home friendly with Brentford on July 28.
Tickets had previously been £30 for adults and £10 for under-16s but are now £20 for adults with kids getting in for free.
Season ticket holders will be charged only £10.
The chance to get a first glimpse of Sancho as a United player is sure to add to the interest in the Everton game.
He was one of three players to miss a penalty in the Euro 2020 shoot-out.
His performances for Borussia Dortmund particularly over the last two seasons has created an excitement among United fans at his arrival as they hope for a tilt at next season’s title.

The club announced yesterday that anyone who had already bought tickets at the higher price for the two home friendlies can either have their seat upgraded at no extra charge or have a refund.
Collette Roche, the club’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “The government announcement has enabled us to open up the stadium and this has given us an opportunity to offer these family-friendly ticket initiatives. We want to thank our loyal fans for their ongoing support and welcome those who will be attending Old Trafford for the first time.
“We are also putting the finishing touches on plans to recognise and reward those in the frontline who have served our community throughout the pandemic at these matches which will be announced in due course.”
