Manchester United have been given a major boost after their deal to sign Tyrell Malacia appeared to hit a stumbling block, while Friday’s Euro Paper Talk claims that an RB Salzburg midfielder has agreed to join Leeds United.
MAN UTD MOVE FOR MALACIA BACK ON
Manchester United still expect to complete the signing of highly-rated Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia.
The Manchester Evening News reports that an issue over Malacia’s representation involving his agent, Ali Dursun, and the player’s father has now been resolved and senior United sources insist there’s “no problem” with the deal.
United‘s process of signing the player has not been affected by the issue that arose. They still have an agreement in place with Feyenoord and expect the deal to go through in the next few days.
The transfer of Malacia is not tied in with the move for Frenkie de Jong, despite the two having the same agent.
Discussions over Barca midfielder de Jong continue, as United push to seal their first signing of the summer.
Malacia is likely to cost the Red Devils around £12.9m. The defender had looked set for a move to Lyon before Erik ten Hag intervened. having watched the player first-hand in the Dutch Eredivisie.
Malacia to fight Shaw for left-back spot
The 22-year-old is expected to battle with Luke Shaw for the left-back spot.
England star Shaw was riddled by injury issues last term, having previously established himself as Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s side.
As for the prolonged De Jong chase, a £56m deal plus add-ons remains on the horizon.
