Man United & Dortmund hold talks over Jadon Sancho and Donyell Malen swap deal
Sancho hasn’t featured for United since 3-1 defeat to Arsenal
A massive discussion regarding a possible player trade involving Jadon Sancho is ongoing.
The 23-year-old outcast winger will be sold by Manchester United once Sir Jim Ratcliffe concludes his £1.3 billion acceptance for a 25% ownership part in the team, as we reported last month. Sancho and another wantaway United star Donny van de Beek seemed to be in the front races to sign. Subsequently, Borussia Dortmund, his previous team, made a return offer to him in exchange for Donyell Malen.
German journalist Christian Falk has now provided an update on the matter, stating that specifics of that agreement may still be worked out by this afternoon’s end of play.
He tweeted that a discussion about the swap is being held in Dortmund today. Falk went on to say that Dortmund is requesting £25.7 million or Sancho from United in exchange for Malen, the Dutch forward.

The former talent of the Arsenal youth joined Dortmund from PSV in 2021, a few days before Sancho’s £73 million move to Old Trafford.
This campaign, in 19 games across every tournament, the 24-year-old Netherlands international, who may operate on both flanks or as an attacker, has scored five goals.
Following an impasse that began when he was taken off of the team for September’s 3-1 loss at Arsenal, Sancho was sidelined in the while.
Ten Hag demanded an apology, but Ten Hag never received one from the England international, whose last appearance was more than two years ago.
After being prohibited from practising with the senior squad and from using any of United’s amenities, notably the restaurant, he was removed from the group on WhatsApp.
Sancho has been pushed to give in by both his colleagues and the club administration, but he continues to resist and is now in a desperate attempt to get out.
