Manchester United set to sign Frenkie de Jong and Tyrell Malacia


Manchester United has agreed on deals in principle to sign Frankie de Jong from Barcelona and Feyenoord left-back Tyrell Malacia.

United’s protracted seven-week pursuit of De Jong is expected to be finalized in a €65million (£56.14m) deal plus add-ons. It is understood the initial fee will be paid in installments.

New manager Erik ten Hag has also been backed with a €15m (£12.9m) move for Malacia, 22 after United hijacked Lyon’s deal for the Netherlands international. Sources say United agreed on the fee with Feyenoord on Tuesday afternoon.

Both deals are subject to the players completing medicals and De Jong and Malacia are still on holiday after their involvement in the Netherlands’ Nations League matches earlier this month.
