A compilation video of soon to be Manchester United man Tyrell Malacia has been getting fans hyped up ahead of his move to Old Trafford.
Sky Sports have reported that a ‘deal is close’ between United and Feyenoord, with the Red Devils expected to fork out somewhere in the region of £13 million for the 22-year-old Dutchman.
Talks were accelerated in recent days as information emerged that a fee had been agreed with Lyon for the player’s services, but with Erik ten Hag a keen admirer it looks like the youngster has his sights set on England.
Further reports suggest that personal terms have already been agreed and that a medical could be set to take place as early as this weekend.
What will Malacia bring to United?
The Dutchman looks set to become the first signing of the Ten Hag era, although given he shares the same agent as United top target Frenkie de Jong, we get the feeling it won’t be long until the second follows him through the door.
In Malacia, United fans can expect an explosive left-back that’s more than comfortable on the ball and therefore perfectly suited to the way Ten Hag likes his teams to play.
Despite his age, he has plenty of experience having played 136 times for Feyenoord already, scoring four goals.

He was also an important part of Feyenoord’s success in the Europa Conference League last season. The Dutch club would ultimately lose in the final to Jose Mourinho’s Roma, however Malacia was selected in the Team of the Tournament for his impressive display throughout the competition.
From an international perspective, he’s represented the Netherlands at every age group from under-16’s upwards and even earnt his first call up to the senior team last year.
Having received a total of five caps so far, he’s well in the frame for selection by Louis van Gaal for the upcoming Qatar World Cup.

So, he’s obviously a top talent, but given he’s plied his trade exclusively in the Eredivisie up until now, many fans of the Red Devils haven’t really seen too much of him.
Which is always frustrating when you want to appreciate your club’s latest and most exciting prospect.
Fortunately, though, the weird and wonderful place that is Twitter has served up another absolute delight in the form of a Malacia compilation video which has got United fans wagging their tails in anticipation.

Did somebody order up the new Patrice Evra?
It’s hard to pin down what catches the eye the most out of the delightful passes or the tough tackles, but overall the young Dutchman’s game seems so well rounded for his age.
Given Ten Hag is known for his skills in developing younger players, it’s fair to say United fans should be getting very excited about this enticing prospect.
