Manchester United is expected to complete the signing of Ajax’s Argentine international Lisandro Martinez.
According to De Telegraaf, the footballer has already arrived in England, where he will undergo medical and sign a contract until 2027.
According to The Telegraph, Manchester United has agreed to pay the player £120,000 each week for the next five years, totaling £31.2 million.
The deal is expected to be completed within the next 24 hours, according to a British news source.
So, if media sources are correct, Old Trafford supporters should expect an official statement tomorrow.
Last season, Manchester United’s defense was their weakest link. Ten Hag’s men conceded 57 goals in the Premier League and will be unable to compete with the elite teams in the coming season unless they make significant improvements.
Martinez was named Ajax’s Player of the Season last season for his consistent efforts under the current United manager.
We already have captain, Maguire, Varane, Lindelof, Bailly, and Jones as center backs. As a result, the neighborhood is overcrowded, and Ten Hag should sell Bailly and Jones, who are at the bottom of the pecking order.
The manager has previously stated that Maguire will continue to captain the team. Who, in your opinion, should accompany Lisandro Martinez in central defense next season?
