Announced close to Olympique Lyonnais, Tyrell Malacia has not yet settled down at Groupama Stadium, since Manchester United has decided to go after him for next season.
After bringing in Alexandre Lacazette, the Rhone club does not plan to stop in such a good way on the summer transfer window. Especially since with the arrival of the American investor John Textor, new main owner of Lyon, OL will have a nice transfer window to strengthen the workforce of Peter Bosz for next season. In search of several reinforcements to put Les Gones back on the L1 podium, the Dutch coach has made Tyrell Malacia one of the priorities of his transfer window. In recent days, OL have made an offer of 14 million euros to recruit the Dutch international. A deal that pleases the 22-year-old, tempted to play under Peter Bosz in the French league. Except that for the moment, Feyenoord has not accepted this offer. Quite simply because the Eredivisie club is waiting for a check for 17 ME to release its nugget.
Manchester United and Newcastle make OL sweat for Malacia

A sum that the Batavian club will have no trouble getting, especially since Manchester United has now entered the dance to try to bring in Malacia. Under the leadership of Erik ten Hag, the new coach, the Red Devils have effectively added the left side to their list to replace Luke Shaw, according to the Express. For the moment, MU has still not made an offer, like Newcastle, also on Malacia during this summer transfer window. Which therefore means that OL still have a head start on their European rivals, but if he wants to complete this recruitment, Jean-Michel Aulas will perhaps have to meet the financial demands of Feyenoord. On pain of letting slip one of his coach’s summer priorities… Which wouldn’t really be a good signal sent before the restart.
