Man Utd move to trump Arsenal for Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez

Manchester United are making a serious push for Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez.

United are looking to hijack Arsenal's bid to land Martinez, says The Sun.

The Gunners have made a third offer for the Argentina international – their previous offer of €40m was turned down.

But United have also registered their interest, with a delegation in Amsterdam last week for talks.

United manager Erik ten Hag has pushed for the move concerned that the 24-year-old would be heading for Arsenal unless they made their interest official to his former club.

Ajax are now prepared to sell Martinez for €50m.
