Contact made between Barcelona and Ajax over Lisandro Martinez


Barcelona are reportedly interested in signing Argentine defender Lisandro Martinez from Ajax.

While he has been linked with a move away from Ajax in the past, there appears to be genuine interest from the Catalan club. Per a report by TuttoMercatoWeb, first contacts have been made between Barcelona and Ajax over the defender. Per the report, Lisandro would cost Barcelona between €20-25 million.

In addition to Barcelona, both Roma and Lazio are reportedly keeping an eye out on the Argentine.

Still only 23 years of age, he has been capped with the senior Argentina national team. He joined Ajax in 2019 and has become a regular in their starting eleven.

  2. I wouldn’t put any stock in this report. Barca are broke and need to get rid of players not add them. Aguero on the other hand is a possibility if Kun is willing to take a BIG pay cut or Messi sacrifices a portion of his salary to bring Kun in.

    • Oh man..Im hella excited at the chance of Aguero moving to Barcelona. Would be amazing to finally see these 2 banging in goals weekly. Also huge boost to NT.

      Barca cannot afford Lisandro let alone Golden boy Haaland and Depay is a joke next to Kun. He’s the perfect short term solution to their 9 problem. Anyway, we’ll see what happens. Hopefully we see comunicado oficial from the club soon.

    • Check out Barcas wages from some rando site. I knew Messis annual but its still insane seeing 1.4m per week for Messi. Holy f%ck. Most people could retire in 4 weeks! I’m sure he can cut to accommodate his buddy.
      Think Aguero makes 13m euro at city. id bet hed take a cut too.

    • Koeman wants Depay where Halland is Barcelona main target, highly doubt for Aguero transfer considering his age and koeman treatment towards older players. I think PSG will be next destination of Aguero as Icardi underperformed in League 1 and Pochettino is there plus PSG will go for a striker for sure in summer.

    • now days talant a lone isn’t enough
      You must have very well known agency like Mino Raiola
      To be able to Play very top end level clubs example de Paul can play any top team easily I mean Real fcb juve list goes on but he lacks agency like Mino Raiola.
      I May sound crazy but Argentina will always produce talent
      It’s another matter weather they will end top team Or mid-table struggling team it all depends thier agencies and marketing.

    • nice article to read but as all this kind of articles “predict the future” is just theory.
      in my age anymore doesn t saying much.
      talent always existed exist and will exist. this is just one part but there is many elements beside that needed for future success or not. true very soon we will live in the new era.
      the future after 2022 or after Messi era.
      this will be hard strange and tearfull era for the football world.
      football sport will enter in new era and of course Argentina mostly too.
      Personally i am blessed because i have lived the same type of era.
      i was kid then and my reaction was very emotional. i thought it was the end of Argentina national team as football i am old enough to know that while tearfull the end of Messi era is not the end of Argentina.
      the people in my age understand what i am saying.

      what we live now with Messi generation ending is exactly what we lived in DIEGO ending times. in Argentina is very clear that. i live it and i see it every day.
      the only change is my age.
      Anymore i will enjoy it and i will keep it in my heart forever because you don t live history every day.this time i will enjoy Messi and after him i will wait the 3rd.
      God give us DIEGO ,after he give us LEO and after him i will wait the 3rd.
      i don t know when or who will be but i am sure one day will come the 3rd.
      it is Argentina s destiny. trust me.

  3. Lisandro should be considers as Left Back as he can not play as Center Back there with the likes of Arjuro,Erik Gracia, Mingueza, Pique,Lenglet.Even for Left Back role has has to fight with the likes of Alba and Firpo whom I consider good player.
    For a Defensive Midfielder role he can be considered.

      • Godin OK in that case we will see. Whoever starts will be considered better than other. Licha Martinez can only play in defensive midfield but he has to compete there with De jong,Busquet and Pjanic.

          • Defensive midfield is easy to capture for him or may be Left Back position. Arjuro,Mingueza and Erik Garcia are best.

        • I believe that he has a huge potential, he is the type of player that would fit barcelona system. He is very good with the ball, very good pass, he anticipates well the only problem is his height. I think is too short to play center back. Mascherano was short but Licha is shorter. I like him very well but I don’t believe he will succeed in an elite team as a Central back.

          • ??? Mascherano 174, Lisandro Martinez 178…Ayala 177…Cannavaro 175…Puyol 178…compared to Lenglet who is a great ball-playing defender with great passing skills just like Lisandro, but Martinez has better dribbling and ball carrying skills, and much better defensive skills. With a tall, agressive defender would be a perfect pair…Lisandro-Cristian Romero…Lisandro and Araujo…Mingueza is a joke, Pep let Eric Garcia easily, so he doesnt see anything in him, Lenglet is a bad defender.

          • plus Pique is old not the future. in this 3-4-2-1 would fit Lisandro perfectly, Koeman follows holland league closely, so he knows him well, Lisandro—Frenkie De Jong—Araujo…Lenglet always let Barcelona down in crucial moments, against Liverpool, against Bayern, against PSG etc. only ball-playing, Lisandro would be a big update
