Manchester United-bound defender Lisandro Martinez has been spotted on a private jet ahead of his transfer from Ajax. Martinez is set to become Erik ten Hag’s third signing of the summer as the Dutchman’s preparations for the new Premier League season finally begin to fall into place.
United have finally agreed a £45million deal with Ajax following a drawn-out negotiation process. The Dutch side initially remained firm and insisted that their best players would not join Ten Hag at Old Trafford, but have now reneged on their stance.
Martinez was a key player under Ten Hag as Ajax won the Eredivisie last season but injuries hampered his progress towards the end of the campaign. The 24-year-old has been consistently linked with United and Ten Hag has now got his top defensive target.
The Argentine was pictured alongside his agent on a private jet seemingly headed to Manchester, where he is set to undergo a medical and sign his contract. He will join Christian Eriksen and Tyrell Malacia in arriving at United this summer.
