Tyrell Malacia officially joins Manchester United



Tyrell Malacia has also attracted interest from French side Lyon; Erik ten Hag has heavily scouted the 22-year-old, who shares an agency with Frenkie de Jong; Malacia fits the profile Ten Hag wants at Old Trafford A package worth around an initial £13m, with a further £1.7m in add-ons and a potential sell-on clause was agreed with Feyenoord for the 22-year-old earlier this week. United accelerated their interest in left-back Malacia in an attempt to beat Lyon to a deal and the Dutch club recently confirmed a fee had been agreed. Going forwards, the 22-year-old completed more shots and take-ons than any other defender in the Eredivisie last season. To put it more simply, Malacia can beat his opposite man and has experience of producing the end product required.


Malacia fits the profile of player Erik ten Hag wants at Old Trafford and he shares an agency - HCM Sports Management - with Frenkie de Jong; the club's premier target this summer. The same agency also represents Donny van de Beek and Victor Lindelof. With Malacia's move nearing completion, United may now consider offers for left-back Alex Telles. Telles has two years left on his contract and United have the option to extend for a further year.

United will also discuss Brandon Williams' immediate future. All parties will discuss whether his development is best served by staying at the club - or going out on loan to get regular football.
