Tyrell Malacia has become the first signing of the Erik ten Hag era at Manchester United.
The 22-year-old, who made his senior Netherlands debut in 2021, was part of the Feyenoord team which reached the final of the inaugural Europa Conference League last season.
His arrival is expected to be one of many for United’s new manager Erik ten Hag, who could go back to the Eredivisie for further recruits as he now moves on to his next target.

On the move, Malacia said: “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.”
Malacia got forward well from left-back for Feyenoord last season, completing more dribbles (50) than any other defender in the Eredivisie.
