This summer, Malacia has been closely associated with a move to Manchester United, and Fabrizio Romano has now confirmed that a deal has been reached. In a recent interview, the Dutch defender said he will join the Premier League this summer.
“In the youth team of Feyenoord we played a youth tournament at United years ago – and I was so impressed by everything. I said to myself ‘I’ll come back here one day.’ That has now come true and that is, of course, wonderful,” said Malacia, as relayed by the Daily Mirror.
The 22-year-old has only become a regular in the past few seasons, so securing himself a move to one of the biggest clubs in the world is understandably a dream come true for Malacia.
“This is one of the biggest clubs in the world, with a fantastic stadium and a wonderful history- and of course with a lot of top players who have played here. I am proud but also very grateful that I get this opportunity. I understand that the work on an even higher level only begins now,” added Malacia.
