Manchester United are set to unveil the signing of Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord as their first summer purchase once his medical is completed next week, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.
In the run-up to Erik ten Hag‘s debut season as manager, the Red Devils have been connected with a plethora of potential recruits this summer, but they have yet to formally announce any deals.
The 22-year-old Dutch defender Malacia traveled to England on Sunday to begin his medical examination, and the Italian reporter claims that he will return on Monday to finish the process.
If all goes well, that means that Malacia could be unveiled as Manchester United’s first signing of the summer on Monday or later in the week.
Romano says that Manchester United have already signed the necessary contracts with Feyenoord for the transfer of the defender as they close in on their first inbound transfer of the Ten Hag era.
Posting on his personal Twitter account on Sunday morning, Romano said: “Manchester United have contracts already signed with Feyenoord for Tyrell Malacia deal, waiting for player to fly to England today afternoon and undergo first part of medical tests.
“Second part of medicals scheduled on Monday morning then first signing will be official.”
