Talks with Feyenoord to reach an agreement, Dutch sources confirm.
Detail: Malacia has same agents as Frenkie de Jong.
The fact that United also have a Dutch coach could mean that the player would be comfortable with a move to Old Trafford, which would certainly involve a better salary than he would get at the French club.
Fabrizio Romano is hinting that work behind the scenes on personal terms with Malacia could have been taking place whilst the work on De Jong’s deal was being done
Erik ten Hag had heavily scouted the 22-year-old as Ajax manager, appreciating his speed, positional awareness, high interception rate, and ability to attack space.
Malacia fits the profile of player the Dutchman wants at Old Trafford and he shares an agency with Frenkie de Jong; the club's premier target this summer.
We now wait to see if the young Dutch player will prefer a move to Manchester United or Lyon.
