BREAKING: Manchester United Completes The Signing Of Lisandro Martinez

 In order to continue their summertime rebuilding under Erik ten Hag, Manchester United has completed the £55 million transfer of Lisandro Martinez from Ajax.

Ten Hag had worked with the Argentina international throughout his previous three seasons at Ajax and had targeted a new center-back during this transfer window.

Martinez has agreed to a five-year contract for £120,000 per week with an option for an additional year with United and Ajax, who rapidly reached an agreement on the £55 million fee earlier in July.

Martinez will cost United an initial £46.8 million plus a further £8.5 million, making him the second-most expensive defender in the team's history behind Harry Maguire.

'Manchester United is thrilled to announce the club has reached agreement with Ajax for the signing of Argentine international defender Lisandro Martinez, subject to medical approval, completion of player contracts, and UK visa procedures,' read a club statement from United.

Martinez made his announcement after the defender was seen being driven by fellow summer addition Christian Eriksen to the team's Carrington training facility on Tuesday.

Martinez and his girlfriend Muri Lopez were seen the night before dining at the Italian restaurant Don Giovanni in Manchester City Center. They were both staying at the nearby five-star Lowry Hotel.
