'A dozen clubs' want to sign Tyrell Malacia, with Manchester United among them
Manchester United are among ‘a dozen clubs’ who want to sign Tyrell Malacia, report De Telegraaf.
But Feyenoord face a real battle to hold onto him, De Telegraaf report there is a ‘good chance’ the left-back leaves the club this summer.
A Mirror report over the weekend claimed United boss Erik ten Hag is targeting six signings, including both full-back positions.
‘A dozen clubs’ want to sign Tyrell Malacia
A dozen clubs’ want to sign Tyrell Malacia, De Telegraaf claim, and name Manchester United as one of them.
French side Lyon are also reported to hold strong interest in the 22-year-old defender, and could be United’s biggest threat for the player.
De Telegraaf report that United’s biggest problem is that left-back is not Ten Hag’s top priority, with centre-back, midfield, and striker higher on his wishlist.
This could mean United risk missing out on Malacia if other clubs make a move earlier, so United need to be agile in the transfer market and able to respond if necessary.
Malacia is the only left-back prominently linked with a move to Manchester United this summer so far, although United will have other options.
Voetball Primeur report Malacia would cost just over 20m Euros (so around £20m), which would be a record sale for Feyenoord.
The defender is already a Netherlands international, and was called up into Louis van Gaal’s latest squad for the upcoming UEFA Nations League games.
