Pretty much all diesels need to spin over at at least 180 rpm when starting,

So is yours?

Possible reasons for slow cranking are poor battery,

failing starter or bad battery/ground connections.

If by jumping it off another car it always starts ok that points more at a poor battery or connections, not a faulty starter motor. Once started and jump leads removed put a voltmeter across the battery and check the alternator is charging ok (around 13.8 to 14.2 volts)

Your giving yourself work!

Check the cranking speed,

!80 minimum over 200 rpm is better.

You stating it starts with a jump would lead me to a faulty battery.

Load testing would confirm.

If the batttery is too small in capacity or past its best then charging it fully won't make a difference, it's starting with a jump which points to the car being ok but the battery possibly underspecced and/or dying.

could it be either starter motor or alternator

You charged the battery fully and it still didn't start without a jump...notably the car starts fine with a jump start.

I'd get the battery checked, and also check all the main connections,
