Transfer Zone: Manchester United’s ‘hijacked’ target Tyrell Malacia closes in on Old Trafford move

Manchester United have failed to get any of their transfer targets over the line. What do you do in a situation like that? Easy, you poach someone else’s target.

After months of negotiations, talks and delays, it appears that Manchester United will finally deliver their first signing of the summer. 

Nope, it's not Frenkie de Jong. It's not Antony either. In fact, the Red Devils are set to sign Tyrell Malacia, who was moments away from signing a deal with Ligue 1 club, Lyon.

Once the rumours began to swirl about United's interest, the player was quick to make his desires known. This will be awkward if deal falls through and he has to go to Lyon.

The big news today came from Merseyside as Mohamed Salah signed a new three-year deal with Liverpool.

That's three more years of torture for Premier League defenders.

European Championship winner with Italy Andrea Belotti has become a free agent. Many clubs are reportedly interested in signing the former Torino man.

If there really is a long queue of clubs waiting for his signature, Man United can forget about the Italian if their sluggish pace in the transfer window is anything to go by.

The whole world is waiting to find out where will Jesse Lingard play next season. Will it be West Ham? Will it be Everton? Could it be abroad? Well, maybe not the whole world.

Apparently, Jesse himself is busy hanging out with the train guy from TikTok. Maybe that explains the lack of action from the Hammers.
