Manchester United transfer news: Man United agree deals in principle for Frenkie De Jong and Tyrell Malacia
According to Samuel Luckhurst from Manchester Evening News (MEN), United’s protracted seven-week pursuit of De Jong is expected to be finalised in a €65million (£56.14m) deal plus add-ons. It is understood the initial fee will be paid in instalments.
New manager Erik ten Hag has also been backed with a €15m (£12.9m) move for Malacia, 22, after United hijacked Lyon’s deal for the Netherlands international. Sources say United agreed the fee with Feyenoord on Tuesday afternoon.
United will move onto other targets, with Christian Eriksen and Ajax duo Antony and Lisandro Martinez also coveted.
Ten Hag favours reinforcements affiliated with Ajax or Dutch football and United have not vetoed any of his suggested targets. Club sources claim all players of serious interest have been thoroughly scouted.
Manchester United transfer news: Man United reinforcing full-back position with Malacia signing
United were open to reinforcing at full-back and were spurred into striking a deal for Malacia – who is represented by the same agency as De Jong – amid Lyon’s interest. Malacia is set to provide competition for Luke Shaw.
United’s return to pre-season training and Ten Hag’s presence at Carrington are believed to have expediated the club’s transfer activity as the departure date for the pre-season tour looms. United travel to Bangkok on July 8 and Ten Hag is determined to have new signings on board to integrate into the squad.
Malacia started in 32 of Feyenoord’s Eredivisie matches last season and lined up in all but two of their Europa Conference League ties, including the final defeat to Roma. Malacia made his Netherlands debut under Louis van Gaal in September and started in both of their Nations League wins over Wales earlier this month.
Alex Telles could leave Old Trafford with the arrival of Tyrell Malacia
United had already planned on offloading full-backs Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon Williams but the scheduled arrival of Malacia leaves Alex Telles vulnerable.
Although Telles, 29, played frequently following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal in November he is not regarded as a starting left-back by Ten Hag and his staff. Telles regained his place in the Brazil squad last season and would likely have to play regularly to ensure his stays in coach Tite’s squad for the World Cup in November.
