For Argentina's central defender Lisandro Martinez, Manchester United has agreed to pay Ajax up to 67 million euros (£57 million). It is anticipated that the 24-year-old would sign a five-year deal with a one-year extension option. A medical exam, personal terms, and a UK visa are requirements for the initial £49 million relocation.
In addition to the £8.5 million in add-ons, Martinez's former teams will receive solidarity payments totaling £2.2 million. He joined Ajax in 2019 for £6.3 million from Defensa y Justicia in Argentina and made 120 appearances. He also participated in Newell's Old Boys games.
Since making his senior debut in March 2019, Martinez has received seven Argentina caps. He is United's third summer addition after Tyrell Malacia arrived from Feyenoord and Christian Eriksen left on a free transfer.
Martinez competed for Ajax under the new United manager, Erik ten Hag, where he won the Eredivisie titles in 2021 and 2022 as well as the Dutch Cup in 2021. He was also chosen as Ajax's player of the year for 2021–2022.
