Tyrell Malacia reveals the moment he decided to join Manchester United
Manchester United left-back Tyrell Malacia revealed that he was only going to join one club when he learned about the Red Devils’ interest in him.
Malacia was in talks with French side Olympique Lyon over a move this summer, before Erik ten Hag showed interest in him. Ultimately, the left-back joined United this summer and became the first signing under the new manager.
“I always dreamed of the Premier League. When Manchester United came, I knew where I wanted to go. It happened the way it did.”
United paid £14.7 million for the left-back and he has proved to be worth every penny so far. The 23-year-old has comfortably established himself in the team and has become the first-choice over Luke Shaw.
He has played in eight games so far in all competitions. But his performances against Liverpool and Arsenal were simply outstanding and made him a fan favourite.
In fact, the new signings have helped the Red Devils turn their favour this season. Christian Eriksen has rejuvenated the United midfield while Lisandro Martinez has formed an impressive bond with Raphael Varane at the back.
Meanwhile, up front Antony seems very comfortable in the squad and also scored on his debut. The passion that the new players have bought in, and has helped United turn around their miserable start.
