Though the typical Fourth of July celebrations in New York City were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the annual Macy's fireworks show went ahead with a finale atop the Empire State Building.

Each day during the lead-up to July 4, starting on June 29, Macy's launched unannounced five-minute fireworks shows across the city in each borough.

The secrecy was meant to prevent large crowds of people from gathering to glimpse the show.

"Each show is brief and will be over before residents can gather at its source," the company said in a statement.

In a series of tweets Saturday night, Macy's thanked city officials for helping the shows go forward.

"Thank you for joining us for this year's #MacysFireworks! We are glad for the opportunity to look forward to the hope of a brighter future for everyone, everywhere," the company tweeted.

Here's what the five shows, and Saturday's finale, looked like:

Sancho will earn a basic wage of £350,000-a-week in Manchester, according to Bild.

The deal therefore hangs on United's ability to agree a fee with Borussia Dortmund for the 20-year-old - with an asking price of £108million.

The Bundesliga side are described as not moving an inch on their valuation of Sancho, who has two years left to run on his current deal.

And Dortmund want any deal sorted by August 10, when they head to Switzerland for a pre-season training camp.
