Manchester United winger, Jadon Sancho, is linked with a return to Dortmund, on the other hand, reports indicate the Red Devils want an attacker from the German club.
According to an exclusive story covered by FT, Man Utd are preparing a loan to buy offer to sign Donyell Malen from BvB this month.
The news source have mentioned that the Old Trafford outfit are in intense discussions to lure the Netherlands international in the January transfer window.
United are eager to get a loan deal with an option to make it permanent at the end of the campaign.
However, Dortmund prefer to offload him on a permanent basis. Last month, we covered a story via Sport Bild stating that the Bundesliga side are prepared to sell Malen to Man Utd for a fee of £25.7million (30 million euros).
The 24-year-old is a versatile talent who can effectively play on both the wings and even as a center forward if needed.
Ten Hag would be aware of his qualities as Malen regularly scored and created goals in the Dutch Eredivisie for PSV Eindhoven before joining Dortmund.
In the 2022-23 campaign, he directly contributed in 15 goals in 22 league starts for the Signal Iduna Park outfit.
This season, so far, the Oranje attacker has often warmed the bench and found the net 5 times in 11 Bundesliga starts thus far.
Dortmund CEO, Watzke, has confirmed that they are in talks with the PL side to secure Sancho on loan. In your view, should Man Utd use Sancho as a trump card to sign £25.7million-rated Donyell Malen?
