On Tuesday, July 5, 2022, Manchester United posted a statement on its official website confirming Tyrell Malacia’s transfer.
The defender signed a contract that will keep him at Old Trafford through the summer of 2026, with an option to extend by an additional year, according to club reports.
Malacia stated his joy at joining the team, particularly at the prospect of working with manager Erik Ten Hag.
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.
The Dutchman played 136 times in his career with Feyenoord and has five full international caps to his name. He has also represented his nation at every level, from the Under-16s to the senior side.
