Revealing the first rookie to MU in the Ten Hag era: STAR £ 20 million, selling cheap Martial
Erik Ten Hag is aiming for his first contract as the head coach of MU.
Admire Tyrell Malacia’s talent:
Erik Ten Hag will officially take over MU from Ralf Rangnick after the current season ends. The Dutch strategist has identified the first target that he will bring back Old Trafford.
Malacia can be MU’s first rookie under Ten Hag
According to the Mirror, Ten Hag is targeting Feyenoord defender Tyrell Malacia to strengthen MU’s options in defence. Previously, the 52-year-old military leader tried to sign the 22-year-old player for Ajax, but Feyenoord rejected the move because of the rivalry between the two top football teams in the land of tulips.
It is known that Tyrell is priced at about 20 million pounds, the number does not matter for MU. The “Red Devils” recently sent scouts to watch the Dutch defender during Feyenoord’s 3-2 win over Marseille in the first leg of the Europa Conference semi-final on April 29.
Malacia made a special impression in that encounter and now the 22-year-old can be recruited by MU to help Ten Hag develop the style of play that he will apply for the Old Trafford team. Malacia will create competition for Luke Shaw’s left-back position, something Alex Telles has failed to do since arriving at MU.
It is not yet clear how much money Ten Hag will be provided by MU’s management summer transfer window However, it is likely that the Dutch strategist will face a busy summer with 1 defender and 1 central midfielder on the priority list.
Ten Hag is expected to replace a series of departures including Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic. MU recently contacted a number of English stars including James Ward Prowse and Kalvin Phillips to help solve a shortage of midfielders next season.
MU accepts to sell cheap Martial
In another development, The Sun reported, MU is ready to sell Anthony Martial to any team willing to spend 12 million pounds. The French striker has been on loan at Sevilla since January. The 26-year-old has struggled with injuries since arriving in Spain and has made just eight appearances, not even scoring in La Liga.
Despite Martial scoring 1 goal in 3 appearances in the Europa League, Sevilla is still likely not to activate the clause to buy the French striker. Martial still has a contract with MU until 2024 and has a salary of about £ 240,000 / week, far beyond the common ground of Sevilla and other interested clubs.
Currently MU still has to pay 60% of Martial’s salary while the French striker plays on loan at Sevilla and the remaining 2 years in the 26-year-old’s contract are expected to cost the “Red Devils” 25. million pounds. Therefore, the MU leadership hopes to push Martial away this summer in the plan to rebuild the squad under the new coach Ten Hag.
