Manchester United FC buy Ajax’s best player
Martinez has often played centre-back at Ajax recently, but he can play well at left-back and defensive midfield.
At just 1.75am tall, Martinez was the best fighter at Ajax last season, with a 71% success rate.
He can be used in many of the same roles as Daley Blind last season, but the Argentina international is more highly regarded for his ability to dispute hand-to-hand.
Man Utd have successfully signed versatile defender Lisandro Martinez from Ajax for a transfer fee that could be up to $ 55 million.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano said the deal was completed. Man Utd reach an agreement with Ajax and Martinez on the morning of July 15, London time.
Chief executive Richard Arnold and director of football John Murtough have represented United in Amsterdam from July 13 to hold talks with Ajax CEO Edwin van der Sar about Martinez.
Man Utd will have to pay Ajax a maximum fee of $ 55 million, including a fixed part and a part of the surcharge depending on Martinez’s contribution to the new team.
The 24-year-old defender signed a five-year deal with Man Utd, where he reunited with his former boss at Ajax Erik ten Hag.
