Manchester United on Wednesday completed the signing of the Argentine defender Lisandro Martinez from Ajax for a fee that could reach nearly £57 million. The 24-year-old, who has won two Eredivisie titles under new United manager Erik ten Hag in Amsterdam, has signed a contract until 2027 at Old Trafford, with the option of a further 12 months. “It’s an honor to join this amazing football club,” the midfielder told United’s website. “I worked so hard to get to this moment and now that I’m here, I’m going to push myself even harder.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to be part of successful teams in my career and that’s what I want to continue at Manchester United.
“There is still a lot of work to be done to get to that point, but I am convinced that, under the guidance of this manager and coach, and together with my new teammates, we can do it.” Okay.”
John Murtough, Manchester United’s director of football, said: “Lisandro is an outstanding player who will bring even more quality and experience to Erik’s (Ten Hag) squad.”
Ajax say they have agreed a transfer fee of 57.37 million euros ($58.2 million, £48.3 million) with United. Including the variables, that amount could increase to 67.37 million euros.
