“Tyrell Malacia might not come back to football again so we need act fast and buy the best left fullback who is currently playing in League 1. He is everything we need”-Man Utd have opened talks to sign in-form French left-back as Tyrell Malacia uncertainty continues

Reports suggest that Manchester United are shifting their transfer focus ahead of the upcoming window, particularly towards bolstering their left-back options amidst uncertainty surrounding Tyrell Malacia’s future.


Since undergoing knee surgery last summer, Malacia has been sidelined, with confirmation from manager Erik ten Hag indicating his unlikelihood to feature again this season. While the club has yet to provide official updates on Malacia’s situation, Fabrizio Romano shed light on the complexities surrounding his case.


Compounded by Luke Shaw’s injury woes, which have necessitated makeshift solutions like deploying Victor Lindelof out wide, United are actively seeking solutions to their left-back dilemma. One potential target emerging in discussions is Melvin Bard, a highly-regarded defender from Ligue 1 outfit Nice.


According to the Evening Standard, talks are underway between United and Bard, who has showcased versatility and promise with two assists in 23 appearances for Nice this season. His ability to operate further forward in an attacking capacity adds to his appeal, as he vies for a spot in France’s Euro squad this summer.


Bard himself acknowledges the significance of a national team call-up, emphasizing his dedication to continuous improvement. With two years remaining on his contract at Nice, Bard remains focused on maintaining his current form while acknowledging the competition for places in the France squad.


While left-back reinforcement is a priority, United’s transfer ambitions extend beyond this, with reports suggesting interests in a forward to complement Rasmus Hojlund, as well as reinforcements in midfield and central defense.
