“Manchester United are closing on Lisandro Martinez deal: new round of talks scheduled today with Ajax to reach full agreement for €50m plus add-ons, after the meeting in Amsterdam. Payment terms, one of the final steps.” said Fabrizio

The deal is however expected to sail through without any hindrances after the defender himself told the club that he wanted Premier League experience. The 24-year-old also chose Manchester United as his next destination given his close relationship with Erik Ten Hag.

Big blow for Arsenal

The signing of Lisandro Martinez is a big blow for Arsenal who is also in the market to sign a Left back defender to compete with Kieran Tierney who has been on and off due to injuries.

After making a request for the player, Manchester United also moved in making a counter offer that was better than that of Mikel Arteta and Edu.

Arsenal will now look elsewhere as they also sought to bring in a midfielder who will compete with Nicolas Pepe on the flanks.
