Luke Shaw is delighted with what he’s seeing from Jadon Sancho.

Manchester United’s marquee addition over the summer was Jadon Sancho. Well, the Englishman was certainly our most expensive signing.

Coming from Borussia Dortmund with a huge reputation, Sancho brings even more firepower to an already star-studded attack. The tricky winger is yet to score a goal or assist a teammate this term, though performances are starting to improve.

Earlier today, Jesse Lingard backed his England colleague to succeed at Old Trafford despite a slow start. Now, Luke Shaw is next to heap the praise on his new United teammate, who he claims ‘can go right to the very top’.

Check out what Shaw had to say in full here:

“Sometimes, for people, it takes time,” Shaw told talkSPORT.

“I wouldn’t say struggle because I don’t think he’s struggling at the moment. He’s working extremely hard behind closed doors.

“He’s training really well and looking really sharp. He just hasn’t had that bit of luck that sometimes you need for your first goal or first assist. But I’ve got no doubt in my mind, it’s coming.”

“The talent he has is unbelievable, he can go right to the very top. It’s just about him staying focussed, keep doing what he’s doing in training and working hard. His time will come.”

Shaw knows more than anyone that these things take time. It took the left-back the best part of half a decade to show us all his full capabilities.

Nobody will see the progress more than the players. They’re working with Sancho day-in-day-out and they’re all supremely confident that Sancho will work out here in Manchester.

He’s training well and although he isn’t in the goal or assist column just yet, everyone can see the positive signs and it does feel like only a matter of time.

Sancho’s last outing against Everton was a lovely little cameo and if that’s a sign of things to come then we’re going to seriously enjoy watching this young man work over the next few years.

He plays with a supreme confidence, he glides across the turf with genuine purpose and he’s just an aesthetically-pleasing individual to watch in action as his movement is always so slick.

I guess we can underestimate that even Sancho, who was born in England, needed time to settle in. Hopefully from here it’s onwards and upwards!
