Lisandro Martinez looks to push through dream move to Manchester United

Fabrizio Romano says next days "crucial"

by Paul Speller

Manchester United target Lisandro Martinez is “ready to go to war” with current club Ajax in order to get his dream move.

The defender is said to be eager to link up with his former boss and new United manager Erik ten Hag, according to The Mirror.

And with Fabrizio Romano reporting on Twitter that United have made an improved bid of €50m, it seems certain to be a matter of time before the deal is done.

Ajax are holding out for more, and the Dutch giants seem to be encouraging a bidding war for the player.

And with Arsenal also showing firm interest in the 24 year old, Martinez looks certain to have played his last game for Ajax.

The desire to play under ten Hag again however, puts United firmly in the driving seat for his signature.

The centre back is ready to force a move away and cloud even refuse to train, according to Utdreport on Twitter.

And although the player himself has remained quiet about the move, sources suggest Martinez is losing patience with Ajax.

The Argentine international is set to hold talks with the Dutch giants in the coming days, and is said to be disappointed that he had been unable to join ten Hag at Old Trafford.

Romano says that the “next days will be crucial to understand Ajax final position.”

United are also keen on Martinez’s Brazilian teammate Antony, but no real progress seems to have been made on a deal for either players.

As the Red Devils prepare for their tour matches in Thailand and Australia, Ten Hag will be hoping the Argentinian can be secured quickly.

With the hopes that new signings would be included in the tour squad, Martinez could still join up with the travelling United squad should a deal be done soon.
