Manchester United have hijacked a deal between Lyon and Feyenoord for Dutch left-back Tyrell Malacia.
According the Italian sports journalist Fabrizio Romano, Lyon had reached a verbal agreement
with Feyenoord over a deal for Malacia but United stepped in before it was signed.

Malacia has the same agent as Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong, and according to
Sky Sports News Manchester United are nearing an agreement for the midfielder worth around €68m.
United are yet to make strides in the transfer window this summer but the addition of both Dutchmen could spring them back into life.
Malacia made 50 appearances for Feyenoord last season and has five international appearances to his name.
