Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Argentine international defender Lisandro Martinez from Dutch club Ajax on a five-year deal, with the option of a further year.

Martinez follows former coach Erik ten Hag to Old Trafford in a move that would strengthen the defence of Manchester United, as they gear up for the 2022/2023 Premier League season.

“It’s an honour to join this great football club. I’ve worked so hard to get to this moment and, now that I’m here, I’m going to push myself even further,” Martinez said on the club’s official website following the announcement.

“I’ve been lucky enough to be part of successful teams in my career and that’s what I want to continue at Manchester United. There will be a lot of work to get to that moment, but I firmly believe that, under this manager and coaches, and together with my new teammates, we can do it.”

“I want to thank Ajax and their fans for all the support they gave me. I had an unbelievable time there but feel the moment is right to test myself in another environment. Now I am at the perfect club to do this.

The 24-year-old’s arrival marks the latest building block of Ten Hags’ restructuring of the English giants, following the additions of Tyrell Malacia and Christian Eriksen.

Manchester United coach ten Hag is also in crunch talks with star forward Cristiano Ronaldo, in a bid to keep him at the club for the new campaign.
