Borussia Dortmund's hopes of bringing in PSV's Donyell Malen as a replacement for Manchester United-bound Jadon Sancho are understood to have hit a snag.

According to Bild, the two clubs are still far apart in the valuation of the 22-year-old.

It's claimed that Dortmund aren't willing to pay more than €27 million to acquire Malen, but PSV are asking for 'well over' €30 million.

Another sticking point is the player's salary demands, with Malen's agent, Mino Raiola, aiming for a threefold wage increase for his client, who currently earns €2 million per year.

Malen, who is capable of playing up front and as a winger, scored 27 goals in 45 games for PSV last season.
