Borussia Dortmund have reportedly identified the player they want to sign to replace Manchester United target Jadon Sancho this summer. Sancho is once again wanted by United after a deal failed to materialise last year.
Dortmund wanted £108million for the England ace but the Red Devils were not prepared to pay that much in a Covid-affected market.
Sancho is likely to be available for considerably less than that price this summer.
The winger has just two years remaining on his contract at Dortmund.
And the Bundesliga club already seem to be preparing for his departure.

German outlet SportBild say Dortmund are looking at PSV Eindhoven forward Donyell Malen to replace Sancho.
Malen spent a couple of years in the academy at Arsenal but failed to make a senior appearance in the Gunners’ first team.
He has 55 goals to his name in 116 appearances for PSV and Dortmund clearly feel he can fill the void if Sancho were to move on.
SportBild says Dortmund will need to sell players before bringing any in this summer.

One of the players mentioned is of course Sancho, who could be allowed to leave for £81.8m (€95m).
Dortmund’s stance with Malen could help speed up a deal which would see Sancho return to England with United.
The Signal Iduna Park club are now waiting for United to make their move.
United finished second in the Premier League this season but ended the campaign trophyless after losing to Villarreal in the Europa League final last week.
Speaking after that defeat, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted he wanted to make a number of signings this summer.
“I’ve been delighted with the effort, the desire, the determination of all of the players, I can’t fault them at all,” Solskjaer said.
“We’ve probably done as well as anyone could imagine.
“We are here now, we need to do better, we need to work better, work harder, cleverer.
“But as I said two or three players to strengthen the starting XI and the squad all together is important for us to go even further.
“Because I’m sure our contenders or challengers will also want to improve and we want to improve as much as we can.”
