Manchester United complete signing of defender Lisandro Martínez for £56.7m on five-year contract

Manchester United has confirmed the signing of Lisandro Martinez from Eredivisie champions Ajax the club announced on Wednesday.

Martinez has signed a five-year contract at Old Trafford to reunite with former manager Erik ten Hag in a deal worth an initial €57.37 million, which could rise to €67.37m through variables. The Argentina international arrived at United’s training ground on Tuesday ahead of confirmation of his move.

Martinez said: “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.

“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.”
