Manchester United are closing in on the first signing of Erik ten Hag’s spell as manager with a fee agreed for Tyrell Malacia.

The Feyenoord left-back, 22, broke into the Netherlands national team last year and helped his club reach the Europa Conference League final, which they lost to Jose Mourinho’s Roma.

Reports suggest United will pay an initial £13million for Malacia, with £1.7m in add-ons, should he accept their offer ahead of interest from Lyon.

Feyenoord sporting director Frank Arnesen told 1908.nl: “The agreement is there. We are now waiting for Tyrell. If he says yes, then a transfer to Manchester United is imminent.”

United are reportedly considering selling Brandon Williams with Ten Hag well-stocked for left-backs. Luke Shaw and Alex Telles have competed for the position in the last two seasons.

Feyenoord coach Arne Slot told the media earlier this week that clubs are interested in signing Malacia this summer.

“It would be a bit stupid to deny that a club has given us a concrete offer,” Slot said. “But he does not have a different shirt on yet, so they will have to try a little harder.”
