Report: 'Incredible' player Arsenal sold for £500k now £60m Real Madrid target


Donyell Malen is reportedly a £60 million-plus Real Madrid target six years after the Borussia Dortmund forward left Premier League giants Arsenal for just £500,000. 

Thank the lord for Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli. 

Because, if it wasn’t for the twinkle-toed duo, Arsenal’s decision to accept a mere £500,000 from PSV Eindhoven for a teenage Donyell Malen would probably have been the source of a great deal of frustration, especially as the jet-heeled Dutchman finished his final season at the Eredivisie giants with 27 goals in all competitions before securing a big move to Borussia Dortmund. 

As luck would have it, Saka and Martinelli have enjoyed a rather staggering exponential growth themselves. So much so that Malen would probably struggle to nail down a starting place at the Emirates these days. 

The Netherlands international certainly isn’t finding opportunities hard to come by in the Bundesliga, however. He took up much of the goalscoring mantle following the departure of Erling Haaland to Manchester City in 2022. And, according to TEAMtalk, Real Madrid are ‘keeping tabs’ alongside a number of top-level Premier League teams. Liverpool are reportedly long-time admirers. Manchester United could do with another goalscorer too. 

A potential £60 million move to the Santiago Bernabeu, meanwhile, could be inspired by the remarkable impact Malen’s former Dortmund team-mate Jude Bellingham has made in the Spanish capital. Malen may potentially be an alternative to Real’s number one target Kylian Mbappe too. While he lacks the PSG star’s remarkable consistency, he does share Mbappe’s searing pace and his ability to grab a game by the scruff of the neck.
