OFFICIAL: Netherlands Left-Back Malacia Joins Man United On Four-Year Contract (Updated: 1 month ago)


Manchester United, on Tuesday, completed the signing of Netherlands left-back Tyrell Malacia.

United confirmed the signing in a statement on their website.

Malacia, 22, joins from Dutch Eredivisie Feyenoord and has signed a four-year-deal with the option of another year.

The deal is set to cost United £13 million plus add-ons and the first signing under new manager Erik ten Hag.

“Manchester United is pleased to confirm that Tyrell Malacia has joined the club, signing a contract until June 2026, with the option to extend for a further year.

“The Dutch defender made 136 career appearances for Feyenoord and has represented his country at every level from the Under-16s to the senior team, with five full international caps to his name.”

Speaking after completing his move to United, 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 looked set to sign for Ligue 1 outfit Lyon after the French side agreed a fee with Feyenoord only for United to make a late swoop.

He will compete for a place at left-back with Luke Shaw.

Meanwhile, reports have it that the United are now willing to listen to offers for Brazilian full-back Alex Telles.

Malacia arrived in Manchester on Sunday and was back at Carrington on Monday morning to undergo the second part of his medical.
