Lisandro Martinez: Imminent!Nathan Best
Lisandro Martinez is set to officially become the second summer signing for Manchester United, as the deal with Ajax enters its final stages.
Martinez, 24, will join Manchester United for a reported fee of €55million as the Dutch club’s resolve to keep hold of the Argentine has faltered.
The versatile defender turned down the opportunity to join Arsenal as the prospect of reuniting with Erik Ten Hag proved to be the catalyst in the decision making for him.
Fabrizio Romano claimed that this deal could be finalised within 24 hours, with United executives flying back to England to iron out the details.
