Manchester United amongst 12 clubs chasing £20m Eredivisie star

Manchester United are one of twelve clubs chasing Feyenoord defender Tyrell Malacia, according to reports in the Netherlands.

The Red Devils have been linked with several stars in the Netherlands following the arrival of Erik ten Hag from Ajax as their new manager.

And left-back Malacia is just one of those names, with the 22-year-old having made 32 appearances in the Dutch top flight in an impressive campaign for a Feyenoord side that fell to a 1-0 defeat to Jose Mourinho's Roma in the Europa Conference League final.

And, as per the Telegraaf, the Red Devils are one of a dozen clubs, that includes French side Lyon, keen on the defender. However, the Ligue 1 side are thought to be ahead of United at present.

The latest on Jurrien Timber

Meanwhile, there remains significant interest in Ajax centre-back Jurrien Timber with the defender having been discussed as an option to improve a leaky Red Devil defence alongside Villareal defender Pau Torres.

Timber excelled under ten Hag this season, making 30 Eredivisie appearances on the way to another title. Now, the defender following his old boss to Manchester could be on the cards.
