Dortmund – The transfer of Jadon Sancho will bring Borussia Dortmund a whopping 90 million euros. SPORT1 shows how BVB plans to invest this money.
The chewing gum transfer par excellence of recent years is finally on the home stretch!
Jadon Sancho could still move to his dream club Manchester United during the European Championship and bring Borussia Dortmund a whopping 90 million euros into the club’s coffers.
As reported by SPORT1, the Red Devils have come decisively closer to BVB’s demands in recent days. The financial gap is now no longer in the double digits. All parties involved in the deal assume that the transfer will be completed promptly.
90 million euros – a lot of money that BVB can put to good use, especially in Corona’s time. But what will Dortmund do with the Sancho millions?
Will Oranje star Malen replace Sancho?
One thing is clear: the money will not be reinvested one-to-one in new players. The Cup winner announced a few weeks ago via ad hoc message that it expects a loss of 75 million euros for the current fiscal year, which runs until June 30, due to Corona. More than half of Sancho’s millions will therefore be used to plug Corona’s holes.
Money is being freed up primarily for the signing of an adequate successor to Sancho. According to SPORT1 information, the signing of a goal-scoring winger is the top priority. Holland rocket Donyell Malen is the top favorite.
PSV Eindhoven is demanding around 30 million euros for the 22-year-old winger, who is being advised by Mino Raiola. The star agent also represents the interests of Erling Haaland, among others. BVB bosses are in regular contact with the Italian-Dutchman anyway. There have also been talks about Malen.

Liverpool is also said to be interested in Malen
For the last night eliminated EM driver, the Dortmund have internally set a pain threshold. This is according to SPORT1 information at a little more than 25 million euros. Malen, who according to English media reports Liverpool FC are also interested in, scored 27 goals and provided ten assists in 45 competitive games for Eindhoven last season.
However, Malen is not the only player on BVB’s list: The Dortmund bosses around manager Michael Zorc, his designated successor Sebastian Kehl and chief scout Markus Pilawa have been looking around intensively for potential Sancho successors for months and have other players on their books.
BVB officials are also on the lookout for another winger for the right side. They are preferably looking for a left-footed player. Noni Madueke is considered a candidate. The 19-year-old Englishman scored nine goals and eight assists on the right wing for PSV Eindhoven in 32 games.
BVB wants to broaden its lineup in central defense
The search is also on for a young central defender of top caliber. With Mats Hummels, Manuel Akanji and Emre Can, who can also play this position, Dortmund feel they are well-positioned, but they are not yet fully satisfied in terms of width.
