Lisandro Martinez: Manchester United close in on Ajax defender after advanced talks

Manchester United finalize deal for Lisandro Martinez after advanced talks with Ajax.

The 24-year-old defender is keen to reunite with Erik ten Hag and become his second signing of the summer.

United chief executive Richard Arnold and director of football John Murtough traveled to Amsterdam this week to conduct and finalize negotiations.

Ajax were initially reluctant to lose their player of the year from last year’s Eredivise campaign but now expect Martinez to leave.

The Argentina international has played mainly as a central defender under Ten Hag since joining Ajax three years ago, but can also play as a defensive midfielder.

Martinez was keen to join a Premier League club this summer and also attracted interest from Arsenal but has opted to return to work under Ten Hag.

The 24-year-old would become United’s second summer signing following the £13million arrival of Tyrell Malacia from Feyenoord last week.

Christian Eriksen will also sign a three-year deal at Old Trafford after completing a medical.

United continue to pursue their priority summer target Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona with the £17million deferred wages issue still unresolved.
