With the players linked to Manchester United being players whom Erik Ten Hag is familiar with, the door has opened for young full-back Tyrell Malacia who is believed to be a target for the Red Devils this transfer window.
With the likes of Frenkie De Jong, Antony and Christian Eriksen all being players whom Erik Ten Hag is familiar with, Tyrell Malacia has emerged as a prospect to offer Luke Shaw competition in the upcoming season.
United's left-back is renowned for his injury problems, having missed large chunks of last season.
Alex Telles would replace him, but it seems that an upgrade on the Brazilian is needed in order to strengthen the depth in quality at the club.
Having played 32 games in the Eredivisie last season with a total of 136 games in the competition, at 22 years old Malacia has certainly gathered the required experience needed, with the young defender playing a crucial role for Feyenoord.
Although he has made his way through the academy joining the first team in 2017, Malacia has been vocal about his belief in taking the next step into his career.
When speaking about his future in an interview with RTV the Dutch defender said, “I'm certainly ready for the next steps.
"I feel like everything happens for a reason and everything is written. If it's the right time, it's the right time.”
Malacia then left the doors open on a potential transfer saying: "I'm not really thinking about it, it's in the back of my mind.
"But I don't want to comment on it."
Malacia certainly leaves the doors wide open for a potential transfer this window with his recent comments as the interest in the young defender heats up.
With the young defender only having two years left on his contract, it is believed that Tyrell Malacia will certainly take the next step in his career in this transfer window.
With the latest news from Fabrizio Romano who reports that Lyon has an agreement in place with Feyenoord for a fee of €15m for Tyrell Malacia, it is unknown whether Manchester United will enter the race for the young defender by submitting a bid themselves.
Whether it is in Manchester United’s interest to chase the 22-year-old for his signature or not, the young fullback is at a bargain price in the transfer market.
With Erik ten Hag being familiar with the talented fullback having coached a successful Ajax side in the Eredivisie, it is an interesting transfer to watch out for as the young fullback is set for the next step in Europe's topflight.
