Jadon Sancho appeared to drop a transfer hint on Instagram Live – at least that is what some Manchester United fans think.
The new £73million summer signing from Dortmund was announced as a Red Devils player on Friday after he put pen to paper on a five-year deal and was handed the number 25 shirt.
Sancho is in training ahead of the new Premier League season and on Monday was working out on a treadmill at home.
While running on the spot the England international forward decided to video himself on Instagram Live, inviting Man United fans and his many followers to ask him questions.

One Red Devils supporter wasted absolutely no time getting to the point and commented: “Touch your hat to announce [Raphael] Varane”.
Seconds later Sancho put both hands to his head and touched his hat, sending Manchester United fans into overdrive.
The Red Devils have been in hot pursuit of Real Madrid defender Varane ever since snapping up Sancho.
The France international has just one year left on his contract in Spain and Real Madrid are willing to sell now to ensure they get a fee for the player after extension talks broke down.
Reports claim that Manchester United moved closer to securing Varane’s signature this Monday after agreeing on personal terms with the World Cup-winning centre-back.
Varane is reportedly set to complete his Red Devils medical in two days’ time.
United have had a successful transfer window to this point, with the club also tying down manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to a new deal last week.
