Jadon Malik Sancho (born 25 March 2000) is an English footballer. He plays as a winger for Premier League club Manchester United and the England national team. He is considered one of the best players in the world, due to his trickery, game intelligence, pace and use of feints in one-on-one situations.[5][6]

He was a youth player for Watford and Manchester City. He then signed his first senior contract with Borussia Dortmund in 2017. In his second season, he established himself as a first-team regular and was named in the 2018–19 Bundesliga Team of the Season. In the 2019–20 season, Sancho won his first trophy following the DFL-Supercup victory over Bayern Munich. He was named runner-up in both the Golden Boy and Kopa Trophy awards in 2019. Sancho returned to England to sign for Manchester United in 2021.

Sancho was part of the England youth team that won the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup and made his debut for the senior team in 2018.
