Borussia Dortmund are said to be planning a swap deal with Manchester United to bring Jadon Sancho back to the club.

Jadon Sancho is keen to leave Manchester United, and there have been contrasting rumours about Borussia Dortmund's interest in signing the forward. Now BILD are claiming that the Black and Yellows are keen to sign the 23 year old and could look to send Donyell Malen to Manchester United to reduce any potential transfer fee.

It has been reported that Donyell Malen wants to leave Borussia Dortmund in the winter transfer window, with a move to the English Premier League his desired destination. Manchester United have been linked with a move for the Netherlands international, but it remains to be seen how serious their interest is. The BVB bosses value Malen at close to the 30 million euros they paid to sign him from PSV Eindhoven in 2021.

BILD add that Borussia Dortmund may look to sign Sancho on an initial loan deal to further offset the cost. And the forward would also need to take a pay cut in order to join Edin Terzic's side. But the move is certainly not out of the question, according to the tabloid.

Juventus and FC Barcelona have also shown interest in signing Jadon Sancho, who hasn't played for Manchester United since August. He was suspended from the first-team by manager Erik ten Hag after he complained that he was being made a scapegoat. Sancho has scored 12 goals in 82 appearances for the Premier League side since his big money move from Borussia Dortmund.
