“It’s an incredible feeling to have joined Manchester United. This is a new chapter for me, a new league with new team-mates and a tremendous manager [Erik ten Hag] leading us.
“I know from playing against his teams in the Eredivisie, the qualities that he has and what he demands of his players.
“Whilst I know that I am still young and will continue to develop, I can promise the United fans that I will leave everything on the pitch every time I pull on the red shirt. I’ll always be thankful to Feyenoord for all they have given to me and my family.
“None of this would be possible if it wasn’t for them. Now I’m ready to focus on the future with United, and help my new club achieve success.”
Malacia looked set to finish paperwork for Lyon after the French side concurred a fee with Feyenoord just for United to make a late plunge. He will now seek a spot at left-back with Luke Shaw.
Malacia showed up in Manchester on Sunday and was once again at Carrington on Monday morning to go through the second phase of his medical.
He has been capped five times by Netherlands and leaves Feyenoord after playing more than 100 games for his hometown club.
Meanwhile, Manchester United football director John Murtough, said:
“Tyrell is an exciting, dynamic young footballer with excellent experience for his age, including five seasons in the Eredivisie, a European final and full international honours for the Netherlands.
“We look forward to seeing him continue to develop under the guidance of Erik ten Hag and his coaching team in the years ahead.
“Everyone at Manchester United welcomes Tyrell to the club.”
