Manchester United’s Tyrell Malacia move complicated by representation issue

Manchester United’s bid to sign Feyenoord defender Tyrell Malacia is being complicated by an issue surrounding his representation in the proposed transfer, The Atheltic understands.

United are believed to have reached a full agreement with Feyenoord to recruit the 22-year-old Netherlands international for € 15 million plus € 2 million in add-ons, as well as a sell-on clause.

That means only personal terms need to be put in place, so currently, the switch remains on track.

But sources close to the Dutch club say the intermediary Malacia has worked with previously has not been authorized to conduct this deal and the matter must be resolved before it is finalized.

The left-back is believed to have decided against using Ali Dursun for the impending move to Old Trafford, instead operating alongside his father.

It is unclear whether the same factor will affect United’s negotiations to acquire Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona, ​​given Dursun is acting on behalf of the 25-year-old midfielder in that situation.

United and Barcelona have a consensus on the fee for De Jong – € 85 million including € 20 million in bonuses – but there is still work to be done on the payments and structure, while personal terms also need to be discussed with the player.
