After completing a £14.7 million transfer from Feyenoord, Tyrell Malacia has become Erik ten Hag’s first signing at Manchester United.
The 22-year-old has agreed to a four-year deal at Old Trafford, with an additional year’s option.
Last week, United and the Eredivisie team came to an agreement on a deal worth approximately £13 million initially, plus £1.7 million in add-ons and a possible sell-on clause.
In an effort to outbid rival French club Lyon, United increased their interest in the Dutch international.
Ten Hag is drawn to Malacia because of his speed, spatial awareness, high interception rate, and ability to attack.
At Carrington, there is confidence that he can develop under the 52-year-guidance old’s into the elite full-back he has the potential to be.
