Manchester United are closing in on completing a move for Feyenoord defender Tyrell Malacia, with the Dutchman set to fly to England on Sunday to become Erik ten Hag’s first signing at Old Trafford.

It has been a frustrating start to the transfer window for United, who have watched a number of their rivals add to their squads in recent weeks. 

However, the Red Devils are on the verge of finally getting a deal across the line as Malacia is expected to undergo the first part of his medical on Sunday afternoon.

He will then complete the final stages of his medical on Monday morning, with an announcement on his arrival likely to come shortly afterwards.

United have had to work hard to land Malacia, as the 22-year-old had looked set for a move to Lyon.

The Ligue 1 club had agreed a deal with Feyenoord for the full-back, before United gazumped their offer.

Malacia is now heading to the red side of Manchester, and will challenge England international Luke Shaw for his starting berth at left-back.

Despite his tender years, he has already made 136 senior appearances for Feyenoord, and helped the Eredivisie side make the Europa Conference League final last season.

United will hope that the addition of Malacia can kickstart their summer spending as they look to recover from a dismal 2021-22 campaign.

Former interim boss Ralf Rangnick claimed after the team’s 4-0 loss against Liverpool in April that the club could look to sign as many as 10 players ahead of next term.

However, it has been all about players departing Old Trafford thus far, with the likes of Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani and Jesse Lingard leaving once their contracts expired last month.

It also emerged on Saturday that Cristiano Ronaldo wants to leave the club again, and has told his employers to allow him to move on if they receive an appropriate offer from a potential suitor.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner only returned to United last August, but he has been unhappy for several months due to the team’s poor form and regular turnover of managers.

He wants to challenge for major honours in the final years of his career, and feels this is unlikely to happen if he stays at United.

His agent, Jorge Mendes, has spoken to Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Napoli about Ronaldo’s situation in recent weeks. 

With Ronaldo’s future being uncertain, it has not been an ideal start to ten Hag’s tenure, but by bringing in Malacia, he may now be optimistic that he can start to reshape the United squad to his liking this summer.
