Feyenoord line up replacements for Manchester United target Tyrell Malacia

Dutch side Feyenoord have identified replacements for Manchester United target Tyrell Malacia, reports Voetball International.

The left-back has been linked with a move to Manchester United, reported by The Mirror and De Telegraaf.

The latest report suggests strongly that Feyenoord are planning for Malacia’s departure this summer, with two potential replacements already identified.

United are yet to make an official offer for the defender, while Voetball International reported earlier this month that Feyenoord rejected an insufficient offer from Lyon.

Feyenoord line up replacements

VI report: “Tyrell Malacia has yet to be sold, but Feyenoord is already working on his successor.”

The two targets identified are Bayer Leverkusen’s Daley Sinkgraven, and Chelsea teenager Ian Maatsen.

Malacia has recently been on international duty with the Netherlands, providing an assist in their first win over Wales earlier this month.

The Mirror report he is valued at around £20 million, a reasonable fee for a 22-year-old international.

Left-back is a position at Manchester United which could do with a shake-up, and Malacia would be an interesting prospect to bring in, who Erik ten Hag already knows well as an Eredivisie opponent.

Both Luke Shaw and Alex Telles have questions over their suitability for Ten Hag’s system, and with attacking full-backs important for how the Dutchman plays, a left-back who can get up and down the flanks as efficiently as Malacia can, would be an interesting player to add.
