The priority of recruiting OL and Peter Bosz in the left rear positions had a name: Tyrell Malacia. The 22-year-old Dutch international from Feyenoord, who was much liked by the Lyon coach, seemed close to committing himself in recent days, but newcomers from the Netherlands on Tuesday put a brake on Lyon’s aspirations.
“OL has served as a hare for Manchester United”
Initially, the Feyenoord sporting director explained to a Dutch media that an agreement had been reached with Manchester United (15 million euros, plus 2 million bonus), a higher offer than the one proposed by OL. , which reached 15 million, including bonuses. It remained to get the player’s agreement to rally Manchester, and in the evening, his representatives would have warned the OL, according to The Team, of his choice to favor England.
