incoming Manchester United coach Eric Ten Hag Hopes to make Feyenoord left back Tyrrell Malacia His first signature of the summer.
A product of Rotterdam’s academy system, Tyrell Malacia, 22, made his debut in 2017 and hasn’t looked back since. The defender played 133 matches for Feyenoord In all competitions, including 47 games so far this season. He also joined the Dutch national team, and won his first international match last year.
Erik ten Hag tried to sign Malacia for Ajax but Feyenoord resisted selling him due to the rivalry between the two clubs. However, things can change in his new workplace like Ten Hag look anxious To bring the three-man Netherlands international to Old Trafford. Indeed, Manchester United sent scouts to watch the player during Feyenoord’s 3-2 victory over Marseille in the first leg of the Europa Conference semi-finals last week.
Erik ten Hag will arrive at Manchester United at the end of the season and is expected to oversee the team’s overhaul after a forgotten season. A large number of players are nearing the end of their contracts and expected to leave the club in the summer, including the likes of Nemanja Matic, Juan Mata, Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard.
The Red Devils have given up their hopes of reaching the top four after last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to Arsenal. While they escaped a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Old Trafford recently, the club’s miserable season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralph Rangnick demonstrated the massive changes needed at Old Trafford.
Ten Hag is expected to have a huge boost in the transfer market so he can start the club’s recovery. Although the transfer budget alone may not be enough to fill all the gaps in the team in one window, therefore, the Dutch tactician is ready to sell a few players in order to bolster his transfer fund.
Left-back Alex Telles is among those names Manchester United willing To listen to the offers at the end of the campaign. The Brazil international, who has failed to cement his place in the first starting line-up since arriving from Porto in 2020, appears to have been deemed redundant by the incoming Reds boss.
Tyrell Malacia may be the player to replace Telles at Old Trafford. Malacia fits the image of a talented, hungry young player with so much potential that Ten Hag would like to sign for his new club. The Dutchman will be a boost to the Red Devils’ defensive line that has already leaked more than 50 goals in three games to play this season.
It is believed that a bid of £20m could be enough to convince Feyenoord to move away from Malacia, who are seen as the best left-back in the Eredivisie. With Luke Shaw struggling with his physique and fitness level this season, and Telles not up to par to play a week in the Premier League, therefore, it comes as no surprise that Tin Hag would like to make the Feyenoord prodigy his first signing for Man United.
