Man United are now worried about Tyrell Malacia – and his fitness in the long term.

Manchester United Football Club have struggled on the injury front this season. Erik ten Hag has been working without many of his senior players for multiple months, making it infinitely tougher for this team to grind out positive results.

It’s not an excuse. Rather pure fact. Without your best players, it’s always going to be harder.

Among the players who has been missing is Tyrell Malacia. In fact, the left-back is yet to play a single minute this season for the Red Devils. There’s still some mystery about the injury itself, though it’s obviously a serious problem.

Now, Manchester World have detailed the latest on Malacia, claiming that United have ‘concerns’ about the long-term fitness of the player following an ‘injury-ravaged’ campaign.

The actual article is about potential targets in terms of both manager and players, with left-back a possible place where United could strengthen due to injuries to both Malacia and Luke Shaw.

Honestly, it’s hard not to be worried about Malacia. He’s barely been seen in a year, while his debut campaign was pretty average at best. It’s going to take him many months to get anywhere close to peak fitness. It’s unlikely to happen this season. After so long out, can you really find that top level again? I’d imagine for some, the answer is no.

It does feel like United are trying to plan in the event that Malacia struggles with fitness going forward, which is somewhat of a positive. This club cannot afford another season like this one, where there’s an alarming lack of depth, leading to multiple players being forced to play out of position.

The other issue is that United may now struggle to move on from Malacia, if that was their idea. Why would any club want to take on a player who cannot stay fit?
