Man Utd finalising £40M deal for Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez

Manchester United are finalising the signing of Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez.

Tribalfootball.com columnist Rudy Galetti is reporting it is merely a "matter of time" until the deal is secured.

He also insists that the final paperwork still needs to be done but that the deal will be clinched "soon".

Providing Martinez puts pen to paper, he will become Erik ten Hag's second signing of the summer. He is expected to join United for around £40m.

United have already welcomed 22-year-old left-back Tyrell Malacia to the club as he made the move from Feyenoord earlier this week.
