are looking to find a replacement for Jadon Sancho, who joined Manchester United on a £72.6 million deal earlier this month. The German giants are eyeing PSV’sDonyell Malen
for a potential summer transfer, but a deal for the Netherlands international has proved to be more expensive than anticipated.
According toRuhr Nachrichten
, there is a gap between the two clubs’ valuation of Malen. PSV demand a €30 million fee for the player, while Dortmund are willing to spend much less for the 22-year-old. On the other hand,Liverpool
