Manchester United will be offered the chance to sign Donyell Malen if Jadon Sancho departs the club, FootballTransfers is told.

The Borussia Dortmund winger recently signed for agency SEG, the firm that oversaw Erik ten Hag’s switch from Ajax to the Premier League giants. The firm have forged a fruitful relationship with the club over the past few windows, with the likes of Rasmus Hojlund joining as one of their clientele to get his Old Trafford move last window.

Sofyan Amrabat also defected to SEG from CAA Base to ensure he landed his loan move to Man Utd. There has been some concern over the power that the agency has yielded at the club, but we are told that the situation is quite normal and for an agency to have such a glowing relationship with a club is something done at a lot of elite sides.

We understand that Dortmund are open to offers for Malen ahead of the January transfer window, while they do have a tentative interest in Sancho, who had thrived for the German club before returning to Manchester.

Man Utd are looking at a striker and Serhou Guirassy of Stuttgart is an option. Furthermore, If Casemiro leaves then the Red Devils will find a younger replacement, having previously sounded out Andre over a move, as FootballTransfers previously reported.

The No.6 Joao Neves of Benfica is also a long-term target, but it’s thought that a summer move is likely for the youngster, who is a client of Jorge Mendes’ Gestifute.

It comes after our story that the Man Utd squad are becoming frustrated with the negative leaks coming out of the dressing room.

A majority of the side feel it’s not reflective of the situation as a whole given the reports stem from just two disillusioned players

There are some rifts but some are not happy that two players’ media teams are briefing reports to the press, magnifying what is essentially just two individuals displeased with the amount of running that they’re having to do in training.
