Liverpool, Manchester United learn Donyell Malen asking price

Borussia Dortmund will reportedly demand €40-50 million to sell Donyell Malen, a target for Liverpool and Manchester United.

According to a report by Sport BILD, as relayed by Sport Witness, Donyell Malen will likely leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer transfer window to help the Bundesliga club fund new signings. Liverpool and Manchester United are interested in signing the Dutch attacker. And they will need to cough up €40-50 million to secure his services.

Donyell Malen and his Borussia Dortmund Journey

Donyell Malen has endured a topsy-turvy ride since joining Borussia Dortmund from PSV Eindhoven in July 2021. A former trainee at Arsenal, the 25-year-old spent his formative years in the Netherlands and England, graduating from the PSV Eindhoven youth division.

The Dutchman rose in prominence at the Eredivisie club, which earned him a move to the Bundesliga. But he has blown hot and cold at Borussia Dortmund in the last two and a half years. While Malen has a solid tally of 12 goals and four assists in 30 appearances across all competitions, consistency has been missing from his game.

However, despite not being consistent for Borussia Dortmund, Malen’s stock remains high, with several high-profile clubs interested in signing him. Premier League bigwigs, in particular, are keen, with Liverpool and Manchester United vying for his signature heading into the summer transfer window.

Return to England on the Cards?

Liverpool’s interest in Donyell Malen is understandable. The Reds are in a precarious position over the long-term future of Mohamed Salah, with big-spending Saudi Pro League clubs keen on signing him. So, it behoves Liverpool to scour the market for potential offensive reinforcements, with the Dutch attacker emerging as a target.

As for Manchester United, the Red Devils considered a winter move for Malen before a deal failed to materialise. They remain interested in the 25-year-old, with Erik ten Hag using his Eredivisie connections to pursue him. Meanwhile, Manchester United now know how much it will take to sign him, with Borussia Dortmund €40-50 million to sell him.

Liverpool might be ready to pay close to €40-50 million to secure Malen’s services in the summer transfer window. Meanwhile, the report adds that the Reds are the front-runners to land the Dutchman ahead of Manchester United.
