Tyrell Malacia has decided to change agents in the middle of his planned transfer Manchester United, making the change more difficult.
The Red Devils have already agreed a £13million fee to sign the Feyenoord left-back from the Eredivisie but the transfer has hit a stumbling block.
Malacia was represented by HCM Sports Management but the Daily Mail reports the player doesn’t want HCM to execute the deal, which is proving to be an obstacle.
The agency is also representing Frenkie de Jong, who created an element of concern for the move Ajax star could be complicated by Malacia’s decision.
De Jong is new United manager Erik ten Hag’s priority target for the summer after coaching the midfielder at Ajax.
Ten Hag are trying to turn the tide of the club after their worst record ever in a Premier League campaign in the 2021/22 season.
Despite only being able to offer Europa League football for next season, United are believed to be close to agreeing a deal worth up to £70m for De Jong.
However, personal terms have yet to be discussed with the Netherlands international.
The Red Devils have also been linked with a move for Youri Tielemans from Leicester City but Arsenal have also been credited with an interest.
Speaking about his future last month, Tielemans was asked if he could leave Leicester this summer and replied: “It’s not out of the question.
“I feel very comfortable in Leicester, I was welcomed with open arms from day one. I give everything for the club until the last day.
“But of course you have to listen to other opportunities, you have to look at your career and sometimes you have to make decisions. Maybe someone will come my way.’
