OFFICIAL: Man United Reach Agreement With Ajax To Sign Argentina Defender Martinez (Updated: 3 weeks ago)


Manchester United have announced that they have agreed to sign Argentina central defender Lisandro Martinez from Ajax in a deal believed to be worth £57million.

United confirmed the agreement on their website on Sunday.

Martinez is expected to sign a five-year contract with the option of a further year.

United statement read:“Manchester United is delighted to announce the club has reached agreement with Ajax for the transfer of Argentine international defender Lisandro Martinez, subject to medical, to player terms being finalised, and to UK visa requirements.”

The deal includes £8.5m in add-ons and £2.2m in solidarity payments to Martinez’s former clubs.

Martinez made 120 appearances for Ajax after moving from Argentinian side Defensa y Justicia for £6.3m in 2019, and also played for Newell’s Old Boys.

He has won seven caps for Argentina since making his senior debut in March 2019.

He is United’s third summer signing after Tyrell Malacia joined from Feyenoord and Christian Eriksen moved on a free transfer.

He played under new United manager Erik ten Hag at Ajax and won the Eredivisie title with the club in 2021 and 2022, as well as the Dutch Cup in 2021.

He was also Ajax’s player of the year for the 2021-22 season.
