Man United first signing trends on twitter as fans welcomes new player with new song
Manchester United and Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia have agreed on personal terms, with the Dutch international likely to join the Premier League club.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United will play Feyenoord an initial €15 million with €2 million in add-ons, and the hijacking of Lyon’s move appears to be complete.
The Daily Mail claimed last week that Lyon had filed a £12 million bid for Malacia, and Fabrizio Romano revealed that a contract for the left-back had been completed and that all that remained was to finalize the details before the transfer could become official. Man United, on the other hand, intervened this week and turned Malacia’s head.
Malacia will be ten Hag’s first signing as Manchester United manager, and the left-back is a fantastic fit for the Dutchman. The attacking play style of the Dutch international will ideally complement the offensive possession-based football that Ten Hag is anticipated to implement at United next season, and he is expected to replace Luke Shaw in the Man United starting lineup.
The 22-year-old will depart Feyenoord, where he has spent his whole youth and professional career. Malacia made his first-team debut in 2017 and will shortly make another, but this time in the Red shirt of one of the world’s most powerful clubs.
Tyrell Malacia to Manchester United, here we go! Agreement reached on personal terms, waiting to sign the contracts soon for €15m plus €2m add-ons to Feyenoord. Malacia will be first signing of ten Hag era. 🚨🔴 #MUFC
