Manchester United hijack move and agree deal with Feyenoord for Dutch defender Tyrell Malacia, who has the same agent as Frenkie de Jong June 29, 2022 – Posted in: Soccer

Manchester United are on the verge of making their first signing of the summer having hijacked Lyon’s move for Dutch defender Tyrell Malacia.

However, the 22-year-old left-back, who reached a verbal agreement with the French side, has yet to decide whether to join the Red Devils, however.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano says Man United have reached an agreement with Malacia’s club Feyenoord in a deal worth €15million (around £12.9m) plus €2m (around £1.7m) in add-ons.

Feyenoord director Frank Arnesen told 1908NL, per The Athletic: “The agreement with Man United is there. We are now waiting for Tyrell.

“If Malacia says yes, then a transfer to Manchester United is imminent”.

Romano adds that West Ham were also interested in the player.

Malacia is represented by HCM Sports Management, the same agency that represents Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, who’s been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Man United are close to agreeing a fee in the region of £68million for the Dutch international, who is new manager Erik ten Hag’s top target.

It has taken a little while to get over the line, mainly due to the negotiations over the price tag but talkSPORT understands Man United are aiming to get the De Jong deal done this week.

So far, it has been mainly exits rather than incomings with the likes of Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Nemanja Matic leaving on free transfers.

Goalkeeper Dean Henderson could also be on the verge of an exit, with Nottingham Forest confident of landing him on a season-long loan.
