Manchester United have confirmed their first signing of the summer, with the arrival of Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord now official. The youngster has signed a four-year deal with the Premier League club and has been signed for a fee worth €17 million including add-ons.
The left-back had an agreement to join Lyon, but the transfer was hijacked by United. They offered a higher fee to Feyenoord, and faced little difficulty agreeing personal terms with the player as well.
Manchester United confirm the signing of Tyrell Malacia
Here is what Tyrell Malacia had to say upon being announced as a new signing for the Red Devils: “It’s an incredible feeling to have joined Manchester United. This is a new chapter for me, a new league with new team-mates and a tremendous manager [Erik ten Hag] leading us.
“I know from playing against his teams in the Eredivisie, the qualities that he has and what he demands of his players.
“Whilst I know that I am still young and will continue to develop, I can promise the United fans that I will leave everything on the pitch every time I pull on the red shirt. I’ll always be thankful to Feyenoord for all they have given to me and my family.
“None of this would be possible if it wasn’t for them. Now I’m ready to focus on the future with United, and help my new club achieve success.”
