Jadon Sancho, Borussia Dortmund, 2023/24

Jadon Sancho will reportedly be used as bait by Manchester United as the Red Devils set their sights on one of his new Borussia Dortmund team-mates.

Sancho has found a new lease of life since rejoining his old club on loan in January.

After two and a half miserable years at Old Trafford he has rediscovered some of his best form back in the Bundesliga, scoring twice in his first 10 matches while also playing a key role in Dortmund’s advance to the Champions League quarter-final stage.

The England international is due back in Manchester at the end of the current season.

But, with Erik ten Hag apparently unwilling to consider him a regular first-teamer, a permanent switch back to BVB could well be on the cards.

Swap deal for Sancho?

According to Football Insider, Ten Hag is a fan of Dortmund’s Donyell Malen.

The 25-year-old Netherlands international can play at both centre-forward and out wide and is having a solid season in Germany, having netted 13 goals to date in all competitions while also providing five assists.

With United keen to sell Sancho this summer, Malen could enter the equation as part of a swap move to add further firepower to the Reds’ rather underwhelming attack.

Their top scorers in the Premier League in 2023-24 are Rasmus Hojlund, Marcus Rashford and midfielder Scott McTominay, who have scored just seven goals each.
