According to Athletic, Manchester United’s transfer of Feyenoord defender Tyrell Malacia has been put on hold for the time being due to issues with the starlet’s representation. The 22-year-old is expected to sign for the Red Devils in a move worth around €17m including add-ons.
Whereas Manchester United are still in negotiations with Barcelona over a deal for Frenkie de Jong, the Red Devils are still looking to sign new players after losing more than one this summer. However, the club are yet to agree a deal, although reports have indicated that a deal for Tyrell Malacia is getting closer to fruition. But even that has stopped now despite the fact that United and Feyenoord have reached an agreement for a transaction of 17 million euros, including add-ons.
However, Athletic reported that the deal was blocked due to an issue with Malacia’s representatives as they didn’t have the correct clearance. The 22-year-old would like to move to Old Trafford but the personal terms haven’t been put in place yet which is why the move is on hold for the time being. The report said the Malacia middleman is the issue behind the stoppage as they were not allowed to conduct the deal which complicated the move.
It is also feared it could affect a move for Frenkie de Jong as the duo share the same agent in Ali Dursun, but Athletic have reported United are still confident of a deal for the Barcelona midfielder. The two sides have already reached an agreement on an €85m fee for the 25-year-old, although personal terms have yet to be put in place.
