Borussia Dortmund are reportedly keen on replacing Manchester United-bound Jadon Sancho with Lyon star Memphis Depay.
The Red Devils are thought to be in advanced talks with the former Man City winger, and a deal could be struck in the coming days.
The German side will reportedly look to replace Sancho with another creative force in Depay, who flopped during his short stint at Old Trafford.
According to Bild, the Dutch international will cost north of €44m, despite having only a single season remaining on his contract.

The winger has been Lyon’s driving force ever since leaving Old Trafford, even though his 2019/20 season was cut short after suffering a cruciate ligament tear in December.
He has however made a successful recovery and is expected to be fit ahead of next season.
Prior to his injury, Depay was in top form for club and country, scoring 14 goals and providing two assists in 18 games in all competitions.

It’s however highly unlikely he will be fit for Lyon’s Champions League second-leg clash against Juventus next month.
The French club leads 1-0 from the first leg and will hope to complete a stunning win when they fly to Turin.
