Transfer Talk: Dortmund open to Malen-Sancho swap deal

Borussia Dortmund are planning to make an attempt to sign out-of-favour Manchester United winger Jadon Sancho in January, according to Sport Bild.

The 23-year-old has been strongly linked with an exit from Old Trafford recently, and former club Dortmund have emerged as front-runners with less than a month to go before the transfer window opens.

The Bundesliga side are looking at a potential player exchange deal that would see forward Donyell Malen head to Old Trafford amid reports that the Red Devils are looking to reinforce their attack, with Malen said to have a valuation of around €30 million.

It is believed that Sancho would, however, need to accept a lower salary for the move to become possible. He currently earns €14m per season at the Premier League side, but Dortmund's current highest earner is centre-back Niklas Süle, who has a deal worth around €12m.

Sancho contributed to 19 goals in 26 Bundesliga games in the 2020-21 campaign before completing an €85m move to Manchester United, where he has been unable to match his previous form in the yellow-and-black of Dortmund.
